  • A little up there, "Hozoin" he! There is a school on the left when running toward Uji on the Fudo Kyoto Uji Line, and there is a road leading to Manfukuji temple when entering there, but there are several temples lined up in the street. One of them, Hozoin, was built in 1669 by an iron-eye Zen master who was awarded a temple and other temples in Huangshan. It can be said that it is the root of the calligraphy such as the ming dynasty of the Chinese character used casually now. This is how it was.

  • Small temple in Obakusan.
  • It is said that it is a temple to tell the feat of Iron Eye Zen Master as a pioneer of the printing technology of Japan having the collection warehouse of an important cultural property iron eyes Ichigi. It was the original form of the draft paper and the folk Trade Corps, and the number of the heap pile piled up in the building full was a word of the masterpiece. It is a work place rather than a temple, and it is supposed to be the workman's working now. It is also recommended as a place for adult social Studies tour.
