Renkeiji Temple

Renkeiji was established by Renkei Taishi, mother of Daidouji Suruganokami Masashige who was the General at the time, for the purpose of providing common people with a sanctuary in 1549. The wooden figure of “Obinzuru-sama,” placed in front of the prayer area, is known for its divine power to heal illness and injuries, and for making people smarter. A street fair is held on the 8th of each month on the temple grounds. It enshrines Fukurokuju and is the fifth stop on the tour of Seven Divinities of Good Luck temples.
