Kokawadera Temple (Main hall)
Kokawadera Temple (Main Hall) is one of the largest of the 33 temples in Western Japan. After climbing stone steps in the plaza's north side after passing through Tonmaka Street from Kokawa Station and passing through the middle gate, the temple is there. The main hall is believed to have been rebuilt in 1720. The temple is characterized by its unique combination of the single-roofed raido hall (the worship hall) and the double-roofed shodo hall (the inner temple). It is designated as an Important Cultural Property. In addition, there is a stone garden divided into east and west sections created intricately combined stones in front of the main hall. The main attraction is the Karetaki Ishigumi, a stone bridge over a waterfall in the Gyokukanryu style. It is characterized by a stone bridge over the waterfall, which was created by dropping the waterfall from a large hill. Because of its rarity, it has been selected as a national scenic beauty.
