  • Tales of Mystic Mountain: The Legend of the Levitating Monk of Mt Horaiji

    Horaiji Temple on Mt Horaiji (鳳来寺 東照宮)
    It is said that 1,300 years ago, on the peaks of Mt Horai lived an ascetic monk and hermit called Rishu. According to temple tradition, Rishu founded the Horaiji Temple in 703. With the winding stone staircase temple approach of 1,425 steps and surrounding primeval wood of cryptomeria cedars, and cypresses, the mountain is a magnificently mystical setting for mountain ascetic practitioners. It has been a popular spot for pilgrimages, especially during the Edo Period.

    Mikawa Province, Horaiji Temple  by Ando Hiroshige. 
    The Temple belongs to the Shingon Buddhist sect, but its founding by the obscure mystic Rishu inexplicably shows dates that are earlier than the late 8th century origin of of Shingon Buddhism usually attributed to the more famous monk Kukai.

    Local legends cast a pall of mystery over the mountain temple’s early background. Below is a conflated story from two accounts of the origins of the miracle hotsprings of Yuya valley as well as the founding of Horaiji Temple.
    The Legend of the Levitating Monk
    Around 1300 years ago, a Buddhist monk named Rishu was said to have happily discovered a natural hot spring bubbling to the surface of the Yuya valley in what is today’s Aichi prefecture.  Rishu according to some accounts, was at the time already residing in the mountains when the 42nd Emperor of Japan whom we know to be Emperor Mommu and who was very ill at the time..
    Trained in the Buddhist arts of healing, Rishu was called upon to find a cure for the Emperor and supernaturally carried away by a phoenix to the royal palace. At the palace, the monk worked hard for 17 days and the Emperor successfully made a full recovery.
    As a reward for his work, the monk was allowed to establish the Horaiji Temple (which means ‘Phoenix Come Temple’) in the mountains above the Yuya hotsprings.

Now, dwelling on the peak of Mt Horai didn’t make it particularly convenient for Rishu to visit the hotsprings that he so favored.  So he levitated his way down the mountain.
    Swooping powerfully down from the peaks of 684m-high Mt. Horaiji like a kyarobinga, and yet gracefully poised like an apsara with his robes gracefully flapping around him and all the while playing his flute, was how Rishu would visit the hot spring waters near the Ure River. This unusual method of travel and the holy monk’s frequent dips made such an impression on the locals, that they thought it opportune to open bathhouses there, in the belief that these would be waters with magical healing powers.
    Now there’s a tale that could have given a movie such as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon a run for their money.
    Modern pilgrims today still visit the mysterious mountain maybe supposing the place to be still infused of magic and the supernatural … locals say the local birds (Japanese scops owls) chant paeans to Buddhism in the late spring and summer: “Bu!” (Buddha), “Po!” (sutra), and “So!” (priest). And tourists and pilgrims still visit as well the hotsprings in Yuya Valley for its medicinal waters that are reputed to cure everything from rashes to cancer.

  • Houraiji temple


    Houraiji is a Buddhist temple of Shingon Buddhism, a major school of Japanese Buddhism, and is located about 30 km northeast of Toyohashi city.
The temple is near the top of Mount Houraiji (684 meters high). So the surrounging lands are steep and covered with forests.
    It was founded in 702.
And from the 13th to the 19th ceturies, this temple had developed under the aegis of the governments.
In 1651, Toshoguu Shrine enshrining Ieyasu Tokugawa, the founder of Edo government, as a god, was built.
So the branch route to make a pilgrimage from Tokaido route was set up, and many worshippers visited here.
    In the late 19th century, this area became the main one of the shrine by government policy.
Only a little area for the temple was permitted, but the temple had declined.
In 1915, the main temple was destroyed by fire, but it was rebuilt in 1974.
In this mountain, there are only Toshoguu Shrine, rebuilt main temple and a few old buildings.
    The main route to the temple is from the southwest foot of the mountain.
Along the approach through the small temple town, there are some ryokans and shops.
But you must walk up 1,425 stone steps from there to the temple.
    If you travel by rental car, the road called Houraiji Park Way leads to around the temple, from Yuya hot spring resort at the eastern foot of the mountain.
    A walking trail passing through the temples, Toshogu, the top of Mount Houraiji and a few observatories is set up. The length is about 3 km, but it is hilly hiking course.
    In the temple town, there is Horaijisan natural science Museum.
It introduces the animals and plants inhabiting Mount Houraiji.
    Since old times, people had listened to any bird singing 'buts-pou-sou' around Mount Houraiji.
In Japanese, 'buts' means 'Buddha', 'hou' (pou) menas 'teaching of Buddha', and 'sou' means 'priest'. They are called the three treasures of Buddhism.
In 1935, at last, it turned out to be the song of Japanese scops owl.
A stuffed Japanese scops owl is displayed in the museum.
Additionally, it is designated as the symbol bird of Aichi Prefecture.
    Yuya hot spring resort is along Hourai Gorge formed by Ure River.
It is an old hot spring opened about 1,300 years ago, and there are about a dozen hotels and ryokans.

    How to get to here

    • To Houraiji (Temple town), get off at Hon-Nagashino station on JR Iida Line. From Toyohashi, about 38 minutes by limited express 'Inaji', about 1 hour by local train.
