Takoyakushido Eifukuji Temple Reviews
大晦日の大根たき。 大根とお揚げが入ってました。こころざしを渡して奥のベンチていただきました。 お茶も振る舞われ、寒いときに、あたたまる。 大丈夫大丈夫守りとか、購入されてる方も。 蛸の像を撫でて、目がよくなるように祈りました。 中は撮影不可。脱帽のこと。 more »Radish on new year's Eve bonfires. Had the radish and fried.

The legend that goes like: a monk named Zenko lived here from 1249 to 1256. His mother was seriously ill and asked her an Octopus, which she so fond of eating, her son, to buy on the market. Her son did as requested, but stopped on the way back by attentive neighbors. Because it was forbidden to kill living things monks, and the purchase of fresh sea animals was therefore more than suspicious. Zenko is forced to open the container from the fish market. The eight shopping miraculously had turned into eight religious scrolls. But that isn't enough, the scrolls were again to a kraken, which emitted a bluish light, and was brought into a nearby pond. The mysterious light healed the mother of the monk, and since then the Octopus in the temple is revered. Who wants to secure the curative effect of the achtarmigen wonders animal, must use his left (!) Rub hands over the big wooden Octopus, standing right next to the donation box. In the temple, you can admire many Octopus who have believers either carved out of wood, but wool crocheted and knitted. The temple is worth a little detour in any case! The temple is located on the Shinkyogoku-dori (which parallel to the better-known Teramachi-dori runs) of the passage to the Nishiki market from a piece of North High Street on the right side.
Unnfriendly "staff" and the goshuin is nothing like it was shown. Nothing much too see and the worst spirital place in whole Kyoto.
