Stunning views can be enjoyed from Ichibata Yakushi’s grounds, which overlook Lake Shinji and Mount Daisen. The ancient 1,300-step path leading to the shrine is also charming and impressive. Ichibata Yakushi comes alive with visitors during a flower festival held every year on April 8, as well as at a so-called “yokasan” event held on the 8th of every month. The principal object of worship at Ichibata Yakushi is a statue of Yakushi Nyorai that was fished out of the sea by a fisherman. The shrine has been revered locally since long ago for its reputed ability to relieve diseases of the eye.
