Wakasa Tourist Infomation

Tentokuji (Temple) Hachijuhakkasho (88 Places)

It is said that the priest Kobodaishi ordered a mason in Sado to carve 88 stone Buddhist images (modelled after those on the Shikoku Pilgrimage) to establish this site as a holy ground. Soil from each Shikoku Pilgrimage site was buried in front of each stone. To step on the ground in front of each is said to be equivalent to walking the actual Shikoku Pilgrimage, with all the associated gains.
