Jikoji Temple (Jodo Sect)
photo   The impressive stone gate is worthy of Onomichi’s nickname “Stone Town”. Jikoji Temple is home to a National Treasure, the “Kenpon Chakushoku Fugen Enmyo Zo” ({F or literally, painting on silk canvas of the bodhisattva Fugen Enmyo), which is Japan's oldest representation of the 20-armed Fugen Enmyo, said to protect from injuries and prolong one's lifespan.

  Visitors of Jikoji Temple can make a “Nigiri Botoke” (“squeezed Buddha”) by taking some clay in one hand, squeezing it, and drawing a face on it. The small statue will be baked and sent to an address of your choice later.
