Jodō-ji (Temple #49)

Main entrance gate at Jodō-ji. In the niches to the left and right of the entrance, you can seen the two guardian statues known as kongo rikishi. The name Jodō-ji translates as "Pure Land Temple."

The main hall at Jodō-ji is built in Chinese style. This temple was once quite large having as many as 73 branch halls and affiliated temples.
