Satani Kensyoji Temple

Located at the foot of the Shoke Pass, Satani Kensyoji Temple is said to have been founded by Denkyo Daishi (Saicho).
Every year on the first Sunday of April, the door to the eleven-faced Kannon (Goddess of Mercy), which is designated as a prefectural tangible cultural property, is opened, and there is entertainment by local people, a flower festival by the children's association, and a votive sumo tournament.
The cherry blossoms and autumn leaves are also magnificent, attracting many worshipers from all over the prefecture as well as the local area.
