Iimoriyama stands majestically in the Kitakawachi area. At the foot of the mountain is Fukujusan's Jigenji Temple, also known as the Nozaki Mairi, which can be found just past the Nozaki Sando Shopping Arcade from Nozaki Station on the JR Gakkentoshi Line.

Jigenji Temple dates back more than 1,300 years ago. The temple is said to have begun when the Buddhist monk Gyoki was so moved by the words of a Brahman priest, who said that the place resembled the land of Harana, where Shakyamuni first preached Buddhism, that he carved and enshrined an eleven-headed Kannon statue.

The Nozaki Mairi, an event handed down since the Genroku period, is actually called the Muenkyo Memorial Service, and is a traditional event in which sutras of gratitude are offered to all living beings.

The magnificent scenery of Mt. Iimori surrounded by nature and Nozaki Kannon Temple, which conveys ancient history to the present day. Why not embark on a journey through time that the Nozaki Sando Shopping Street is proud of?
