About 4 km west of Tomonoura, at the southern tip of the Numakuma Peninsula, there is the Bandai-ji Kannondo (Abuto Kannon-do) Temple.. It is said to have been built in 992 by Emperor Hanayama to pray for safe voyages, and was rebuilt and maintained by Terumoto Mori in 1570. The vermilion-lacquered temple stands majestically on the rugged rocks, and the beautiful view of the sea is said to be one of the most beautiful in the Seto Inland Sea. The view was depicted in an ukiyoe woodblock print by Ando Hiroshige (Utagawa Hiroshige). The temple has long been known for its blessings for safe childbirth, and here you can find many decorated votive pictures with breasts.
