This temple is in charge of the grave of a woman named Benisara, which is known from the legend of Dokan Ota's Yamabuki. Although some fine documents have been passed down, Nishimukai Tenjin Shrine, which is located on the same site as the former Betto, is far more prosperous. As you can see, the current Daisho-in Temple has been integrated into a private house, and when I pressed the intercom, I was told that they do not accept stamps or other stamps. I got the impression that they were running the business with the red plated tomb and the income from the danka. I threw a 5 yen coin into the offering box, but the sound of it coming back was also sad. There are other places other than here that have the legend of Ota Dokan's Yamabuki, and one of the hidden legends of Dokan has been handed down faintly to the present day. However, in the Buddhist world, I believe that the episode of Ota Dokan and Benisara is important as ``love and revolution,'' as described by the famous Buddhist Jakucho Setouchi, who recently passed away. Mr. Jakucho said that when you fall in love, you have to make a ``revolution'' by making efforts to improve yourself so that the other person likes you, but I wonder if he will be able to do it, because when he was a child, he argued against his father, Michizane. Dokan's talent was demonstrated by the fact that he devoted himself to poetry after his encounter with Benisara, was loved by people, acquired a sense of humor that controlled people's hearts, and was able to successfully fight through the Eikyo and Kyotoku rebellions. Even if a love is unfruitful or one that one is not aware of, one can learn from it, grow, and accomplish great things. I believe that the tradition of Dokan Ota and the red plate symbolizes one of life's rites of passage that continues to this day.

It is a quiet temple where there are no people and only cats.
