With its approach flanked on both sides by forest, Soto-in is one of more than ten
large temples in the area which were designated by Kobo Daishi as a sacred location.
Although the temple suffered through two fires and many of its historical records were
lost, it is known that in 1525 Soto-in was converted to the Soto denomination. After suffering through yet more fires, it was finally rebuilt in the year 1596.
