Travel Guide - Jingo-ji Temple

InformationInformation

Jingo-ji Temple is a mountain temple sits on the mountainside of Mt. Takao-san. There is a long flight of stairs which stretch from the Kiyotaki-gawa River to the temple's main gate. The temple was established in 824 as a merger of two private temples of the Wake clan.
The Kondo Hall is the most impressive structure in the temple grounds although it is relatively new, built in 1934. The hall houses a masterpiece of tantric sculpture, the central image of Yakushi Nyorai (The Buddha of Healing). This wooden statue is designated as a National Treasure.
The temple also features "Kawarake-nage", tossing light clay disks from an open area overlooking the Kinun-kyo valley in order to rid themselves of their bad karma. You can buy the clay disks at a stall near Jizo-in and throw them over the railing into the chasm below. The disks are biodegradable, so you can throw as many disks as you want.
