Overview

Daikyo-ji is an excellent example of a town which has flourished around a temple. Although the tiled and gabled main gate of the temple dates to the late 1800s, the sculpting of the Buddhist statues in the alcoves has been attributed to an 11th century master craftsman called Jocho. The gate is located in the middle of the approach road to the temple amidst many shops—many of which sell monkey charms to the faithful to prevent disasters.
