Hashi-dera Temple (Hojo-in)

Hashi-dera, protector of the Uji Bridge, is said that this temple was built by Hatano Kawakatsu in 604 by the order of Shotoku Taishi. It started to be called Hashidera, the temple guarding the Uji Bridge, after 646 when the bridge was constructed. In the Kamakura period, the Uji Bridge was washed away in a flood but later reconstructed by Eison, a high-ranking priest of the Saidai-ji Temple. Around the same time, he constructed the 13-layered Stone Tower in Ukishima (To no Shima) on the sandbank of the Uji River and held a great event where captives were released (Hojoe). The temple was thus named Hojo-in. This temple contains a stone monument commemorating the construction of the bridge “Ujibashi Danhi.” This particular monument is the oldest stone monument in Japan.
