Discover Shosan-ji


Shosan-ji temple is No. 12 on the Shikoku pilgrimage. Located 800m above sea level, it’s the second highest temple on the pilgrimage, and it’s known as a nansho, or ‘difficult place’, with a lot of ups and downs along the way. On a clear day, you might even see Awaji Island. Shosanji means "Burning Mountain Temple" and refers to an ancient legend about a fiery dragon that lived on the mountain and terrorized local people by setting fire to the whole mountain.
