  • Enmyo-ji Temple


    The 53rd Fudasho of the 88 sacred sites on Shikoku. The temple is nicknamed “Wake-no-Enmyo-san” by locals. In 1921, a professor at the University of Chicago who was on a Shikoku Henro (pilgrimage), discovered a copper plate on the miniature shrine where the idol of Amida Nyorai (Buddha) was enshrined. It holds high historical value because the copper plate was marked with the character “Henro (pilgrimage)” used for the first time, and it is still stored at Enmyo-ji Temple.
