Details of the experience

About 1400 years ago, Prince Shotoku visited this mountain on his way to Kawamura Inamura Castle to defeat Mononobe no Moriya, and when he prayed for a win, Bishamontenno appeared in the sky and was given a winning treasure...
That day was strangely the year of the tiger (Chinese zodiac), the day of the tiger, and the time of the tiger.
The prince won with that blessing, carved the statue of the Tenno himself and built a cathedral, and named it "Shigi Mountain", a mountain that should be believed and precious.
Since then, Bishamontenno of Shigi Mountain has been worshiped as a god associated with the tiger.
Also, during the time of Emperor Daigo (910), when Myoren Shonin prayed for the Emperor to recover from his illness, he was immediately healed. As a place, it came to be called "Chogo Sonshiji", and it is familiar to people as "Shingisan-dera" as a temple of common people's worship.
Bishamontenno is the god of good fortune who bestows the virtues of prosperous business, good luck and fulfillment of wishes among the seven deities of good fortune.
Kaisando is said to have the benefits of academic achievement, prosperous business, and good luck.
There are also a Kokuzo-do hall for praying for entrance exams, and Kengaidoji-do for praying for staying healthy and recovering from illness and a spot for improving your fortune.
One of the attractions is the fantastic precincts at night.
It may be time to face the mind and body in an extraordinary space!
