Yasaka-ji Temple

  • Yasaka-ji Temple


    This temple is the 47th temple of the 88 sacred temples on Shikoku. It has a history of 1300 years and a deep connection with the legend of Saburō Emon, who is said to be the originator of the pilgrimage. In the first year of Taihō (701 AD) Era during the Asuka period, Tamaoki Ochi, the Provincial Governor of Iyo, built the temple tower at the request of Emperor Monmu (Reign 697-707). At that time, the temple was named after Ya-saka (eight slopes) because it was built by carving out eight slopes, and the name also derives from an identically sounding expression written with different Chinese characters which means prospering or flourishing.
