Maki Ōdō

Buddhist Temple in Kunisaki Peninsula

This temple's main hall dates from the Edo period, but the key reason to come here is to see the nine Heian-period sculptures designated important cultural properties, centred on the Amida Buddha and protector gods of the four directions, in a more recently built hall. A wi-fi system offers detailed descriptions in English. A stone-stepped path leads to an observation area to survey the plains below.
