History of Kiyama Temple
We are waiting for you in a quiet environment with four seasons
We will continue to protect the temple alongside the Koyasan Shingon sect taught by Kobo Daishi and Kukai, and will welcome those who come to visit us at prayers and annual events. The benefits of prayer include sickness and physical health based on the pharmacist Nyorai who can save illnesses and hesitations of sentient beings with the elixirs created by Io, prosperous business and traffic safety.
It was said that it was erected in the early winter of 815 when Kobo Daishi Mimasaka was visited, and it was said that it was erected when an old man in the shape of a wooden bridge led him to Reiyama in Maniwa City, Okayama Prefecture, and it has been protected since then. I will. We accept graves and eternal memorial services for those who have no guardian of the grave or are too far away to manage, so we look forward to visiting you at prayers and annual events.

We continue to protect the temples that follow the Shingon sect that Kukai preached
We accept prayers etc. on the mountain top of the sacred mountain, which is rich in expression every four seasons.
The erection began when Kukai was led by an old man in the shape of a woodcutter on this land, and since then, monks have continued to protect it for many years. It is known as a famous temple with believers in various parts of China even though there was a history of separation of Kiyama Temple and Kiyama Shrine, which was originally a Shinto and Buddhist tradition, due to the Shinto and Buddhism separation policy by the Meiji government. The principal Buddha is Yakushi Ruriko Nyorai, the eleventh plane Kanzeon Bodhisattva, and the guardian deity is Zenkai Inari Daimeijin and Kiyama Ushido Tenno.
The monks will act on behalf of Yakushi Nyorai for various sicknesses, fulfillment of various wishes of the 11th Kanzeon Bodhisattva, and Aokon Kongo's monkey knot = matchmaking. "Pray for the health and longevity of your dear parents," "Pray for prosperous business in order to promote a private business," "I want to fulfill a relationship with a partner who spends a lifetime with me," etc. Please. Although it is not Buddhism, Japanese Shinto also has the idea of "Kotorei", and by praying with such a prayer in your head, the energy for the realization may start. I pray that sincere prayers will be fulfilled by taking some action by myself.
We will carry out a permanent memorial service for those who have difficulty managing the grave
In recent years, there are many cases in which the management of graves becomes difficult due to the situation such as the nuclear family, the concentration of generations working in urban areas, and the low birthrate and aging population. In addition to the lack of land for graves in urban areas, as a measure to overcome the current situation that grave management is too distant after grandparents due to depopulation in rural areas, we propose ``Nagadai memorial service''. I will. We will place the bones stored in the graves of the people who requested us in the skeleton hall and offer a memorial service for a limited time.
Since it is not necessary to build a new tombstone, the memorial costs can be kept low and the memorial services of the ancestors can be held firmly. If the grave that everyone often associates with is a detached house, then the ossuary is like a condominium or apartment complex. Due to various circumstances, such as the aging of the grave and the management of the grave became difficult, we will come to ask for a permanent memorial service. If you are unable to manage the memorial service for your ancestors due to the lack of management, please consider changing to a form that allows you to continue the memorial service with many people. I'm sure your ancestors will also be delighted with it.
