Mt. Shigi

Tourist attractions

Prince Shotoku regained peace in the world with the help of Bishamon Tenno in "Year of the Tiger, Day of the Tiger, Time of the Tiger" on this mountain, and as a result, Prince Shotoku named it Shigisan "believed, precious mountain" and built a temple to worship Bishamonten.
After that, Myoren Shonin prayed for the healing of Emperor Daigo's illness and was immediately relieved. The Emperor gave the prayer place an imperial title, "Chogosonshi-ji", which represents peaceful reign, protection of the country and long luck of posterity.
