The Native Place Tour of The Tale of Genji / Vol. 42

Introduce Shoji-ji Temple (Hana no Tera) in Oharano Area.
Established in 680, Shoji-ji is famous for its hundreds of cherry trees. The Heian-era poet-priest, Saigyo had a hut in its grounds.

On the porch of the temple is a carved figure of the Buddha's disciple Binzuru (Skt. Pindola), who is said to have the power to heal sickness. Images of Binzuru are often placed outside temple buildings because of the disciple's reputation for occult powers and ability to fly through the air.
