Senyūji - Hermit in Seclusion Temple
Built on the orders of Emperor Tenchi by the local ruler Ochi-no-Kami Okikimi in the 7th century. Legend states that in early history the hermit (sennin) ascetic Abō recited sutras here for forty years before mysteriously disappearing one morning. The honzon was carved by a pious girl and became the guardian Buddha of Emperor Tenchi. According to another legend, the honzon was brought from Ryūgū (the Dragon King's palace) under the sea like the legend at temple 39.

Kōbō Daishi made this the 58th temple on the pilgrimage and the Dōjō of esoteric disciplining (Kegyō). Local people call this temple Osarei (carving while prostrating yourself) because of the legend that the girl prostrated herself once after every cut of the knife while she was carving the honzon.

The temple is located at an elevation of 1, 300 ft (390 meters) on the top of the mountain. According to Frederick Starr, the Niō (28 Buddha figures) and the main Buddha are all attributed to Unkei.

Along the path to the temple, there are thirty-three statues of Kannon, each with an aspect corresponding to a particular temple on the 33 temple Saigoku Kannon Pilgrimage.

The Front God Temple
The temple is located at the foot of Mt. Ishizuchi and was founded by 役行者小角 En no Gyōja while he was engaged in ascetic practices on Mt. Ishizuchi, the highest mountain in western Japan. During these practices, both Sakyamuni and Amida appeared to him in the form of Zaō Gongen. Because it has long been associated with the worship of the god Zaō Gongen in the Shintō tradition, the temple's buildings and shrines are all built in the form of a Shintō shrine. The temple houses a statue of Shaka Nyorai that is attributed to En no Gyōja as well.

According to legend, Kōbō Daishi once spent 21 days on the top of Ishizuchi Mountain performing a Goma ritual and fasting 断食修行 and the Gomonjihō 虚空蔵求聞持法 for 37 days.

Emperor Kammu 天武天皇 dedicated seven shrines and a pagoda to this temple through the Lord of Iyo Province. Frederick Starr notes that the Okunoin is 7 ri up the mountain and only accessible in the summer.

Mount Ishizuchi (石鎚山 Ishizuchi-san)
is a 1,982 metres (6,503 ft) high mountain on the border of Saijō and Kumakōgen, in Ehime, Japan. This mountain is one of the 100 famous mountains in Japan. It is the highest mountain in Western Japan.
Mount Ishizuchi is the highest mountain on the island of Shikoku and also the highest mountain west of Mount Haku. It is known as 'the roof of Shikoku' and the sharp, rocky summit resembles a huge stone hammer (石鎚 ishizuchi).

Mount Ishizuchi is an important object of worship in this region and one of the major centers of Shugendō, a sect of mixture of Shintoism and Buddhism. At the top of the mountain there is a small shrine called the Ishizuchi Shrine. This mountain is also known as one of Seven Holy Mountains (七霊山 nana reizan). There are several sets of heavy iron chains (鎖 kusari) leading up to the summit and this is the route many pilgrims opt to take, the longest set being 68m. However, it is possible to hike all the way to the peak along a trail which includes stairs and ramps with handrails.

The climbing season opens every year on July 1, and women are forbidden from climbing the mountain on this day.Between mid-October and mid-November, people come from far and wide to view the autumn colours.
The area around Mount Ishizuchi is a major part of Ishizuchi Quasi-National Park.

香川県坂出市青海町2635 / 2635 Oumichō, Sakaide-shi, Kagawa



- quote
The temple was founded by Kōbō Daishi. Chishō Daishi later added forty-seven buildings to the temple. The honzon is attributed to Chishō-Daishi as well (but Starr says that it was by Kōbō Daishi). Chishō carved it from a shining piece of wood he found floating at sea. At the time he found it, a white-haired sage appeared to him and said,
'This is the holy site in which to turn the wheel of Dharma and enter Samadhi.'

The temple also contains the mausoleum of Emperor Sūtoku, who was assassinated near Temple 79 in 1156 after being banished from Kyōto following an unsuccessful coup attempt against his brother, the then current emperor. The mausoleum was built in 1414 and is located behind the temple. According to the guidebooks, all pilgrims should visit it.

This temple has some of the oldest buildings on the pilgrimage and the hondō dates back to the turn of the seventeenth century. The three main buildings are in the permanent shadows of overhanging trees. The trees are so thick that a tiny grotto and spring that have formed are in near darkness.

Nr. 80 - 白牛山 Hakugyuzan 千手院 Senjuin  國分寺 Kokubun-Ji
香川県高松市国分寺町国分2065 / 2065 Kokubunjichō Kokubu, Takamatsu-shi, Kagawa



- quote
The temple was founded by Gyōki Bosatsu in 741 at the request of Emperor Shōmu for the protection of the nation. The sixteen-foot Kannon combines both his Jūichimen and Senju aspects and is also by Gyōki, but was partially repaired by Kōbō Daishi after a fire. The Kannon is the finest and largest statue on Shikoku and has eleven faces and forty-two arms.

The hondō is of the Kamakura period and is the oldest physical structure remaining of all the Kokubunji. Its bell is also one of the oldest in Japan. Both the bell and the hondō are considered a National Treasure.

Of interest are some building materials to the east of the hondō left over from the time of Kōbō Daishi's reconstruction of the temple. These are considered National Treasures. The daishidō attracts people with the classical beauty of the Tahōtō (treasure tower) in which a thousand Jizō statues are enshrined.

The walkways of this temple are lined with stone sculptures, each representing one of the eighty-eight temples on the pilgrimage. According to Readicker-Henderson, the carvings for Temples 74 and 75 are especially good. The rows of carvings begin directly behind the main gate, which is protected by a huge spreading pine tree.

There is one official state temple in each province, and these are:
Temple 15 (Awa/Tokushima), Temple 29 (Tosa/Kōchi), Temple 59 (Iyo/Ehime), and Temple 80 (Sanuki/Kagawa).
