Koyasu-Jizoji Temple, about a 30-minute walk from Nankai Miyuki-Tsuji station, is well known for its beautiful weeping variety of wisteria. This temple is said to be originally erected in 737 by Bodhisattva Gyoki who made a great contribution to the construction of Todaiji Temple in Nara and reconstructed in 1650 by Yorinobu Tokugawa, then feudal lord of Kishu (=Wakayama) after the destruction in 1581 during Japan’s civil war period. The temple has been visited by many people who pray for safe childbirth and healthy growth of children. It is the 24th temple of Kansai 25 Flower Sacred Temples. Other than wisteria, visitors can enjoy viewing other blossoms and flowers such as plum, cherry, peony, magnolia and soon, azalea and hydrangea.
