Special Display of the Juichimen Kannon Statue
A special public display of the principal object of veneration at Onsen-ji Temple, the guardian temple for Kinosaki Onsen, said to have been created by the sculptor Keibun
This statue was thought to have been carved from the same sacred wood as the Kannon statues seen in the Hase-dera temples of Nara and Kamakura, and thus is said to be the work of the sculptor Keibun. The statue is over two meters tall and was carved from a single piece of Japanese cypress wood. Normally kept out of public view, the statue is on display for the first time in 33 years.
