Zenrakuji Gate - Zenrakuji is the 30th temple on the Shikoku Pilgrimage and is right next door to Tosa Shrine, a place it is historically connected to. The current Zenrakuji is modern, having been built after World War II, and did not become the 30th temple until the 1990’s. The original Zenrakuji was built in the 9th century within the grounds of what is now Tosa Shrine. Back then it was a temple-shrine complex with various Buddhist structures within it, a situation that is not at all unusual in Japan. It is not alarge temple and the main hall is made of concrete. Most visitors also visit the much larger Tosa Shrine across the road.
