Latest update :

A stamp rally where you can get a full wish stamp by pressing all 34 pilgrimage stamps.

"Daihonzan Sojiji Soin" in Wajima City is a famous temple with a history of over 700 years. It is a training temple of the Soto sect, and it is popular among tourists as it allows the general public to experience meditation, sutra copying, and Buddhist vegetarian food etiquette.

On Mt. Kubiyama behind Sojiji Soin, the main temple, the ``Saigoku Sanjusansho'' sacred grounds are enshrined. The original ``Saigoku Sanjusansho'' refers to the 33 sacred sites of Kannon worship located in the two four prefectures of the Kinki region and Gifu Prefecture. It is believed that by making a pilgrimage to all the sacred sites where Kannon Bodhisattva is enshrined, one can lead a peaceful life.

The main shrine of Sojiji Temple has been renovated into the ``Maitori Forest,'' with the aim of allowing people of all ages to become familiar with the sacred place, making it possible for pilgrims to walk while holding stamp rallies. If you stamp all the pilgrimage stamps installed at 33 shrines and "Jiunkaku" on a special mount, you will receive a stamp of your wishes at the "Goshuin place" at the reception desk, and you will also receive an original Sanka. can. There are seven types of Sanka depicting Kannon Bosatsu, and you will receive one of them (you cannot choose the design).

Furthermore, since it is a small sacred place, you can visit all the shrines in about 30 minutes, and it is also attractive that you can participate only by paying an admission fee. While you're at it, why not enjoy a casual pilgrimage walk?
