One of Japan’s Three Major Prayer Spots on the Shikoku pilgrimage, Nanzoin Temple is the head temple of the Eighty-eight Hallowed Grounds of Sasaguri Shikoku and the first prayer spot for the Mount Koya Shingon Sect’s Exceptional Head Temple.
Transferred from Wakayama Prefecture’s Mount Koya, the temple features the world’s largest lying bronze Buddha statue, “Nehanzou”, completed in September of 1995.
Over one million people visit Nanzoin Temple every year.

The Many Faces of Fukuoka’s Nanzoin Temple
Nestled on the side of a steep mountain hillside in the tiny village of Sasaguri, moss covered trails meander over babbling brooks and waterfalls and each turn in the path surprises with a new altar or Buddhist statue.

板橋区蓮沼町48-8 // Itabashi, Hasunumacho 48-8

Now a temple famous for its cherry blossoms.



During the Middle Ages, 新井三郎盛久 the Samuri Arai Saburo Morihisa wanted to avoid the fighting and moved to 武蔵国豊島郡の志村庄 an estate in Shimura, usashino,
He developed the land and built 蓮沼村 the village Hasunuma (lotus swamp).
The village developed well and to give them a Buddhist protector deity, he asked 宥照上人 Saint Yusho to built the temple at the bottom of 志村坂下 Shimurasaka slope.
The grand-child of Morihisa had a special statue of 十一面観世音菩薩 Kannon Bosatsu with 12 heads made, and also a statue of 弘法大師空海 Kobo Daishi, maybe carved by Kobo Daishi himself.
