Joren-an


h273

Joren-an is the third and final "chapel"/shrine on the trail up to temple 12 Shosanji.

The huge cedar and statue of Kobo Daishi mark the spot where legend says Kukai spent the night on his ascent of the mountain.

It looked pretty dilapidated and there was no-one around, but I was there out of the main pilgrim season so maybe it is manned in season.

It is at 745 meters above sea level but unfortunately the trail drops down to the valley before starting up the final climb to Shosanji.
