Travel Guide - Kiyama-ji Temple


Kiyama-ji Temple is said to have been built by the priest Kukai (Kobo-Daishi) in 815. The temple was worshiped by many Daimyo feudal lords in the Chugoku region, such as Amago clan, Mouri clan, and Ukita clan in the Middle Ages.
The characteristics of Kiyama-ji Temple is its "Shinbutsu-shugo (syncretism of gods and buddhas)". Even though the temple is originally a Buddhist temple, it also enshrines two gods, Gozu-Tennoh and Inari Daimyojin, so at the entrance of the temple, there is a red Torii Gate which is normally seen in the Shinto shrines.
