- quote -
The main hall of Zensuiji Temple is a designated National Treasure, and one of the three Konan Sanzan temples.
It is a popular spot in the fall, when wonderful crimson leaves can be seen. The interior also features no less than 15 Buddha statues, including representative pieces from the Tempyo period (710 - 794) and the Heian period (794 - 1185), all of which are more than worth making the trip to see them.

At the foot of mount Dokkosan 独鈷山, which is about 350 meters high.
This region has been sacred to mountain worship since olden times,called Kamihogura  神秀倉, Kagurayama 甘楽山 or Gochi no Mine 五智の峰 (peak of five wisdom kings).

The temple has been founded in 581 by Shotoku Taishi 聖徳太子, since this was the homeland of his mother.
He made it the temple of Buddhist Studies 仏教弘通 (bukkyo guzu) and offered a special kabura arrow, hence the name Kaburai Temple.


- Chant of the temple
百千代に かけて高鳴る かぶら矢を 
民安かれと はなつおん寺


for generations the high sound of the Kabura arrow
of this temple brought peace of mind to the people



Later Kukai Kobo Daishi passed here and dug the well
Dokko Mizu no Ido 独鈷水の井戸.
In the cliffs 百丈岩 are also the ramains of clay tiles with Buddha statues (穿仏 senbutsu).

The temple later declined and many parts burned down. In 1862 it was rebuild by saint 勇阿上人.
In 1873 it was again destroyed by the soldiers of the Tenchugumi 天誅組 / 天忠組 Tenchu-Gumi in an effort to separate Shinto and Buddhist sanctuaries.
In 1955 久邇宮朝融 Kuninomiya Asaakira climbed up the wilderness  and started the rebuilding.
In 1959 Priest Nakamura Kimitaka 中村公隆 settled here and the rebuildings of the old halls began.

kabura-ya 鏑矢 Kabura arrow



- quote
Signal arrows, (turnip-headed arrow),
a type of arrow used by the samurai class of feudal Japan. Kabura-ya were arrows which whistled when fired and were used in ritual archery exchanges prior to formal medieval battles.
The sound was created by a specially carved or perforated bulb of deer horn or wood attached to the tip. In English, these are often called "whistling-bulb arrows", "messenger arrows", or "signal arrows."
Kabura literally translates to "turnip", and thus the Japanese term technically means "turnip-shaped arrows."
In battle, particularly around the time of the Heian period, kabura-ya would be fired before a battle, to alert the enemy.
