Kobo Daishi Gobyo

Upon Kukai’s death, his disciples erected a mausoleum beside the Tama River woth its crystal-clean water. Even today, many people visit the mausoleum to worship Kobo Daishi.

Gobyo-bashi Bridge

This bridge leads visitors to the mausoleum. Before crossing the bridge and entering the “sanctuary”, it is a custom for visitors to groom themselves and make a deep bow to Kukai, who is believed to be still alive in the mausoleum and offering prayers for all people across the world.
