Hattasan Soneiji Temple

”Hattasan” is one of the three traditional temples in Enshu Area, the other two temples being Kasuisai and Yusanji. The temple is dedicated to Shokannon Bosatsu, believed to ward off bad luck and many people visit here to pray for good luck. It was built in 725 by Gyoki under orders from the Emperor Shomu. In the 16th - 18th century, Generals Imagawa, Toyotomi and Tokugawa were staunch followers but due to the abolishment of land ownership privileges by the Meiji Government, twelve priests' residences were abolished. The popular ”dango” (dumplings) sold inside the temple are believed to ward off bad luck. The temple grounds, with around 700 cherry blossom trees, are also known as a good place to view cherry blossoms.
