  • Very interesting and colourful lesser known temple of Kyoto with its hundreds of pairs of pliers and nails lining the main building.  more »
  • Let's go around the temple. Bamboo as many years as it is. Many people are in the first or second digits. A lot of nails are dedicated to the temple.

Heard of local Tibetan Bodhisattva carved by the stone that master Kuhai brought from home, and can help people get rid of suffering, should initially be called "Kubatsu Jizo (Tibetan liberation, all suffering)". In old times, there's a very snatch merchant sorrow with the disease at hand, this merchant's visit "Kubatsu Jizo", then Local Organs appeared in the dream of the merchant and helped him by withdrawing 2 nail plug in hand out merchant so, later on called "Kuginuki Jizo" (Kugi: nails, Nuki: drawing out).
