The temple was founded more than 1,400 year ago.

It is said that Prince Shōtoku founded the temple in 588 and named the temple “Kire-ji.”
Years later when Kōbō Daishi visited this sacred site in 817, he lamented about the decline of the temple and rebuilt the temple complex over a period of three years. He carved a Fudōson statue and a Bishamonten statue by himself and enshrined each statute on each side of the principal image. Then, he renamed the temple as “Nyogan-ji.”

The existing main hall is the one that was rebuilt in 1716.
The shukubō called “Subaru-an” has been renovated from an old Japanese-style house. It is independent from the main hall. Guests have exclusive use of the whole house for complete privacy.

Introduction of Accomodation

The accommodation “Subaru-an” is adjacent to the temple grounds.
This shukubō features an interior unique to Japanese-style houses such as pictures drawn on fusuma sliding doors and a calming alcove.

The principal image of “Shō Kanzeon Bosatsu” is usually kept inside a miniature shrine called zushi with its doors closed, but the doors are opened for public exhibition on August 8 and 10, the days of Sennichie. If one touches the five color braids called “kechien-mō,” which are tied on the hands of the statue, one can have a connection with Buddha.
