Hattasan Soneiji Temple
Hattasan Soneiji Temple is well known as "Hatta-san", located in one of the three mountains of Totomi Province. It is an ancient temple of the Shingon sect that has been revered by many people since ancient times.According to the temple's legend, it was built in the 2nd year of the Jinki Era (725) by the monk Gyoki of the Nara Period on the orders of Emperor Shomu. Since the main building was destroyed by fire in the late Edo period, the current main hall was rebuilt in 1983, faithfully reproducing the style of the Kamakura period. The Niomon gate, which retains the style of the Momoyama period (1573-1603), is designated as a national important cultural property.From the middle of May to the end of August, the Enshu Miyama Wind Chime Festival is held together with Yusanji Temple and Kasuisai Temple in Fukuroi City, Shizuoka Prefecture, as a new summer event.At Hattasan Soneiji Temple, about 480 wind-bells, including painted wind-bells, are mainly displayed in the temple precincts, and there is also a "wish-granting wind-bell" where people write their wishes on wooden strips of paper and dedicate them.
