Temple Gate at Butsumokuji - The Temple of the Buddha’s Tree is temple No. 42 of the 88 of the Shikoku pilgrimage. The temple appears as a fascinating variety of roofs rising out of the trees. One of these roofs is the unusual thatched roof of the temple bell house covered in moss. The Hondo or Main Hall is topped with a flaming gold ball representing the teachings of the Buddha, which stands in stark contrast to the dark trees behind it. The grounds of the temple are planted with many beautiful trees including magnolia, maple and camphor.
