Yakuosan Tomeiji Temple

The History of Tomeiji Temple

Tomeiji Temple was built by the venerable Seiyo in 1557 in late Muromachi period. It dedicates the statues of Amida Nyorai as its principle image, Enko Daishi (the venerable Honen) and Yakushi Nyorai in it. Especially, Yakushi Nyorai is very old Buddha in this area and it is a woodcut that is said to be carved by Gyoki Bosatsu. And there is an old signpost scribed Beda Yakushi Norai on it. Beda is this area's name several hundred years ago, and some rice paddy (now houses standing) near this temple was called 'Yakushi Shita (under Yakushi)'. Anyway, Yakushi Nyorai in Tomeiji is named Juni Shinshoin and it has been believed to be highly responsive to prayers.
