  • I drove around in Shikoku Henro. There was a large parking lot on the other side of the temple. If you pass through the gate, you will see a splendid main hall.

  • On the third day of the Shikoku Henro 3 nights and 4 days trip, we visited the 22nd Satsusho Equal ity Temple. There is a long stone step which goes up to the main hall in front of the Niomon gate where the statue of Nio of two red bodies is impressive. On the left side of the stone steps is Kobo's spirit water. In 814, when Kobo Daishi prayed to ward off evil, when he dug a well to pray for, milk-colored water springed out and it was also called "white water well." It is protected by the board door under the wall. If you go up the stone steps of 53 steps, you will find the main hall. We will equally heal the mental and physical diseases of all people.

  • One of my favorite temple so far! It shows that it's being taken care of very nicely... and you get there after the most beautiful walk (so far) on the Henro trail !
  • A humble and beautiful little neighborhood temple. i felt very peaceful here and liked that it seemed very far off the path for most henro. Plus there is healing water here. I think I'm better already 😄
