Kasadera Kannon

A temple of the Shingon sect of Buddism. The official name is Tenrinzan Ryufukuji . In 736, a Buddist priest, Zenkoshonin carved a piece of driftwood that reached the coast of Yobitsugi and made a juichimen kannon: the Diety of Mercy with eleven faces and this is enshrined in Komatsudera. In the temple site are Harusamezuka and Chidorizuka, which are stone tablets with haiku by the haiku master, Basho, inscribed on them; and a monument to a legendary swordsman, Miyamoto Musashi.
