Shukubo (Temple Guesthouse) Information

This shukubo was founded in the Kamakura period, about three hundred and several decades after Sou Daishi opened Koyasan, by Monk Fanghai, who is drawn by Emperor Murakami's family line. During the Warring States period, during the Tensho era, Odawara Castle Lord Hojo Naoko lived in the shukubo, and it was called Odawarabo as the family cemetery of the Hojo family, and it is still closely related to temples and followers in the Kanto region today.
The temple treasures include Gyoki Bodhisattva Shinsaku Honson Yakushi Nyorai (Shigebun), Kobo Daishi's essay writing, Oku Tokumei Kage, Takano Yukai Keihakubun, Twelve Celestials Folding Screen, and Hoage Fudoson (Shibun).
