Jurakuji - Like nearby Anrakuji, Jurakuji has a Chinese style gate in front and has a pilgrim guest house temple accommodations. Believed to be founded byKobo Daishi himself, who gave the temple its name. The name Jurakuji refers to the 10 joys to be had in paradise. The current main hall dates back to the Meiji Period, the previous ones having been burned to the ground by fire.There are many statues throughout the grounds, notably a statue of Jizo Bosatsu that people pray to for relief from eye problems.
