Joju'in Temple (Tako Yakushi)
Joju'in Temple's principal image is of an octopus with the god of healing, Yakushi, sitting on top. The priest, Ennin, saw Yakushi in a dream and made the carving to thwart an impending epidemic. While studying in China, Ennin learned how to bestow healing on the temple's stones. The stones can also be employed to remove unwanted warts! This was another technique that Ennin brought back from China.
