Pass of good fortune
We have Yakushi-do or a small shrine worshiping for generations in Motoyu Ishiya. Why not take a walk to meet these deities in the fresh morning or before dinner when the sky dyed crimson. Just pray before them, and you will feel your heart content.
It is said that the image of Yakushi-ruiriko-nyorai was enshrined by the high priest Gyogi who found the Fukatani hot spring in Nara period. The Buddhist image of mercy is known as a deity of health recover, longevity and hot spring, and has been watching over people visiting here since the hot spring opened.
A red small shrine stands looking out over the inn. Hakuashi-inari-daimyojin, a god of good business is enshrined there. The same god is also enshrined in Kanazawa shrine which is known as the place giving a name to Kanazawa city. A steep flight of 68 stone stairs may be self-improvement steps to good business.
The image is dedicated the 7th master of Motoyu Ishiya. He was killed when he saved a child from the traffic accident by dump. His intimate friend carved the stone to make the image for him. Sitting silently under the cherry tree the statue has warm atmosphere to welcome all visitors.
