It is a temple that protects the demon gate of Ise Jingu.
It was customary for people who visit Ise Jingu to visit this temple, as it was sung in a passage from Ise Ondo, saying, "I have to go to Asama."
The main hall is a nationally designated tangible cultural property.
Fukuichi Mankoku Zoudaibosatsu is one of the three major Kokuzo Bodhisattvas in Japan, and is opened once every 20 years in the year following the Jingu-shikinen Sengu.
"If you visit Ise, call Asama, and after visiting the main hall, go to Okunoin."
In the Ise region, there is a custom called "Take-miri", in which a stupa made of square lumber is built in Okunoin to memorialize the deceased.
On both sides of the road leading to Okunoin, stupas with a height of XNUMX to XNUMX meters are erected endlessly, making it a sight unlike any other in Japan.
