A Good Luck Buddha

Constructed in the 9th century. This Yakuyoke Kannon (Buddhist deity for protection against bad luck) has been a pilgrimage destination since long ago and people still come to pray today.

It is said your profits will increase if you visit both here and Zenkoji in Nagano City. The name means facing the Big Dipper, which is rare.

There are souvenir shops along the quaint approach.
