There is a convenience store a 3-minute walk from the trout playground "Troutori".

    • Of Sekikoji"Miso licked or not"

      Mogamiyama "Kankoji"--Minamiuonuma district

      The sect is a Rinzai sect (Zen sect) and belongs to the Engakuji school of Kamakura.The principal image is Shakyamuni Buddha.

      The inauguration was started in 1710 (1410) by Kakuo Soden Osho.

      "Miso at Sekikoji is a valuable miso that protects an important scripture.
      Furthermore, if 600 sutras were buried in that miso
      The miso at Sokokashi Sekikoji must have the benefits and merit of the scriptures."
      And the one who worshiped at Kankoji Temple told me to separate the miso and that.

      Since then, "What people get this miso is
      We can be rewarded with the benefit of the Sutras of the Young Manchurian.''
      People in the world said

      "If you visit Kankoji Temple, there's no reason why you wouldn't visit without the miso."

      As a word for the question "Did you come to Sekikoji and thank you for the good miso?"

      "Miso licked at Kankoji Temple"

      Came to be handed down to posterity.

It was extended to nearby prefectures.However, as time went by and the Hakkaisan kept squealing until the middle of the modern times, its spiritual power was moved deep inside the steep ridge.
