On the East side of this temple, South of the Bishamondo is the Kannondo, built facing West. At the center of it is Nyoirin Kannon, and it enshrines the Saigoku Kannon Pilgrimage’s Kannon. According to “Ishiyama Yoki” written during the Edo period by Sonken at the Ishiyamadera Temple, throughout the Horeki Era the “Shijin Mitsuibo Roni” was constructed in Kyoto, and it was called “Fuda-Do”. Numerous nail holes left in the wooden part of the building confirms that the place of worshipers was a place to dedicate the slips of paper posted on shrine pillars by pilgrims.
