Denomination: Soto (曹洞宗)
Main Image: Yakushi Nyorai (薬師如来)
Location: Kona, Izunokuni (伊豆の国市古奈)
Near the end of the Heian Period in 1167, after being defeated in battle, … brought with him the Yakushi Nyorai which he believed protected him, to this location where later religious rites performed for it.
It wasn’t until late in the Muromachi Period in 1562 that the temple was founded
and became part of the Soto denomination. In 1828, the temple was badly damaged by a nearby fire but was soon restored to its present condition.
