The temple is now part of the New 100 Scenic Spots of Tokyo, famous for its cherry blossoms.

The daughter 和子 Masako of Shogun 徳川秀忠 Tokugawa Hidetada was cured of an eye illness after praying here, so this Yakushi is now known to cure eye diseases.

The statue of Yakushi  is said to have been carved by Kobo Daishi, with 如意輪観音 Nyoirin Kannon at the back side, as a double-statue, covered with gold.
The statue belonged to the 新田氏 Nitta clan in the Kamakura period and was then lost.
Much later in the 南北朝 Nanboku period in 1586 a monk named Gyoshun built a hermitage to pray for peace of the country. At night he could see a special light at the bottom of a plum tree and when he took a closer look at the place, he found the statue of the Nitta clan.
The name of the temple reflects this episode:
Bai Sho In 梅照院 Hermitage of the Shining Plum Tree
The statue is now secret, shown only every 12 years in the 寅年 Year of the Tiger.

- quote -
Jinmaku was born in Ou District, Izumo Province (modern Yatsuka District, Shimane). His real name may have been Shintaro Ishigura (石倉槇太郎, Ishigura Shintarō).
..... In 1850 he moved to Edo (now modern day Tokyo) and became a pupil of Hidenoyama Raigorō, the 9th yokozuna.
..... Jinmaku won 87 bouts and lost only 5 bouts in the top maku-uchi division. All his defeats came when he was ranked as a maegashira and sekiwake. He is the only wrestler to have never lost a bout as a yokozuna.
- - - More in the WIKIPEDIA !



- - - - - Tomioka Hachiman Shrine 富岡八幡宮

... In 1900 (Meiji 33), the stone monument to commend successive yokozuna, the Yokozuna Stone (横綱力士碑, Yokozuna Rikishi-hi), was built by Jinmaku Kyūgorō, the 12th yokozuna. Now, the stone inscribed with the shikona しこ名 ring name of all yokozuna until Hakuhō Shō, the 69th yokozuna, and "unrivaled rikishi" Raiden Tameemon. The shrine has many other stone monuments related to sumo.

At the shrine 天石立神社 Amanoiwatate Jinja, the famous samurai
柳生 石舟斎 宗厳 Yagyu "Sekishūsai" Munetoshi (1527 - 1606) practised martial arts. Night after night a Tengu was his partner. Once he thought he had cut the Tengu, but when he looked closer the next morning, there was only a huge rock with a cut.
This is the Ittoseki 一刀石.
Scratches of the Tengu's nails 天狗の爪痕 are still seen on the stone to our day -

In the north of the Shrine 山口神社 Yamaguchi Jinja is a forest called
Yanagi no Mori 柳の森 Willow Forest.


source : mag-net . 柳生の里

Once upon a time
there was a huge willow tree, reaching almost to the sky. This is the origin of the village name
"village of the huge willow tree".
Legend knows that when 弘法大師 Kobo Daishi passed here, he rammed his tsue 杖 walking staff in the ground and it begun to grow.
During the construction of 京都の三十三間堂 the Sanjusan Gendo Hall in Kyoto they needed large trees and this willow was to be cut down. Many workers came to help carry it away, but it would not move an inch. Suddenly out of nowhere a small man begun to sing a festival song - and indeed, now the tree could be moved easily.
