Chonan Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 3 photos


Kasamori Temple was founded in 784, and is known as the 31st holy temple among the 33 holy grounds of Bando. This important cultural asset, supported by 61 pillars of various lengths and dedicated to Kannon (Goddess of Mercy), is a rare sight even in Japan. The temple is also known for housing a haiku monument composed by the famous haiku poet Matsuo Basho.
302 kasamori chounan-machi chousei-gun chiba-ken

Respectively, 61 pillars where length is different support the temple.

Being able to look about from the temple is a valuable primitive forest that
continues for several 1,000 years.
