Welcome to Our temple , 如願寺Nyoganji.

This is the biggest and Oldest temple in this town named Kire, written in Kanji Chinese characters combination of 喜“pleasure” and 連 “range”.


We can found the name Kire in the old book 古事記伝”Kojiki-den” in Edo period which is a commentary on the 古事記“Kojiki” an eighth century work.

 It is said, Nyoganji was built in the time of Yōmei emperor in 6th century (587-)

At first , this temple was named 喜連寺“Kire temple”

 People believe this Nyoganji temple (used to called Kire temple) was founded by聖徳太子,Shōtoku Taishi in 6th century


According to past beliefs there used to be a big complex of temples.

but it was declining year by year.


The Legend says , 弘法大師(空海)Kukai stopped here on the way to Mt.Koya in Wakayama Prefecture in 817.

Kukai is one of the best known and most beloved Buddhist saints founder of Shingon sect.

He felt so sad to see our decline and prayed for restoration.Then changed the name Nyoganji.
