It is known as “Kannon-sama of Nakata,” one of the three Aizu Korori Kannon. There is a “Dakitsuki-bashira” in the hall, which is said to bring the fulfillment of one’s wishes in all matters. It is said that Egawa Nagasha built the main image to mourn the sudden death of his only daughter, Tsunehime, in the middle of the Kamakura period. It is also known as the 30th temple of the 33 Kannon of Aizu, where Hideyo Noguchi’s mother, Shika, prayed for the healing of her son’s burns and his success in life, and where she made a moon visit.
