Okabe Station

Kotaiji Temple

A Buddhist temple that was restored from a state of devastation without a head priest, flourishing to become a symbol of Okabe Station during the Edo period. At Yakushido on the left side of the main hall, it is believed that the holy priest Mokujiki Shonin, who was 83 years old at that time, carved the two statues in the 12th year of the Kansei era (AD1800). Designated as a cultural asset of Okabe, the standing statue of Prince Shotoku, whose graceful looks make him appear to be deep in meditation, is famous for being a masterpiece among masterpieces, exuding the calm mental state of its creator the holy priest Mokujiki Shonin.
