1st Temple of the Shikoku 88 Temple Pilgrimage: Ryozen-ji

Kobo Daishi designated this temple as the starting place for the Shikoku pilgrimage that includes 88 temples, and was founded around 1300 years ago by the Bodhisattva, Gyoki. There is a gorgeous Japanese garden on the grounds, as well as a statue of Kannon, the goddess of mercy, that can grant wishes. Year round visitors come to see these as well as other treasures at the temple.
