Travel Guide - Karukaya-san Saiko-ji Temple

InformationInformation

Karukaya-san Saiko-ji Temple was established in 1831. The temple is famous for "E-toki", a Japanese Buddhist practice of story telling with Buddhist paintings to explain a Buddhist principal. The temple's E-toki depicts the tale of "Monk Karukaya and his son Ishidomaru", which has deep associations with Zenko-ji Temple. The temple's original Hondo main hall, which was used until 1938, was built of the same materials with the main hall of Zenko-ji Temple. In the temple grounds, there is a monument of Matsuo Basho's poetry, which is the oldest in Nagano prefecture.
