Temple Gate at Kirihataji Temple 10 is associated with the goddess Kannon, and is popular with women. The temple is said to have been founded by Kobo Daishi, who was training here, asked a weaver's daughter for a patch to repair his kimono's broken robe, and the girl generously cut out the woven cloth and presented it to him. Kobo Daishi was deeply moved by this, and asked the daughter's wish. She asked him to engrave the Senju Kannon for the memorial service of her parents. The two-storey pagoda dates from 1618 and has five bays - it has been designated an Important Cultural Property by the Government of Japan.
