Travel Guide - Shakuson-ji Temple (Nunobiki Kannon)


Shakuson-ji Temple is said to have been established in 724 by a high priest Gyoki. From the temple at the top you can see Mt. Asama.
One of the temples overhangs in the cliff and overlooks Komoro. The famous "Legend of Zenko-ji" originated here - A cow snatched a cloth belonging to a wicked old woman, who pursued the cow until it led her to Zenko-ji Temple in today's Nagano City. In the temple the cow turned into a golden Kannon (goddess of mercy) and admonished the old woman for her wrongdoings. Having been converted, the old woman went back home and enshrined Nunobiki Kannon on the cliff.
