● What is the Zodiac Guard Principal?

The twelve zodiac signs are located in the eight Buddhas associated with the zodiac. To be correct, it is called "Ichidai Mamoru Honzon", and by believing in each Honzon, you will not only gain the power to live and bring about the auspiciousness of your life, but also receive the benefits of extinguishing disasters and prolonging your life.

It is truly precious to set the defensive principal as one's great defensive principal, to seek profit and peace of mind, and to deepen devotion. Recently, the "Zodiac Guardian Holy Land" was opened by eight ancient temples on the Miura Peninsula. Two temples near Keikyu Kurihama station, two temples near Misakiguchi station, and the Miura Peninsula's sacred mountain Takeyama Fudo, Ashina, Hayama, and finally Zushi Daishi Enmei-ji in front of Keikyu Shin-Zushi station and everything in one day You can worship. The entire process is 50 km from Sahara I / C on the Yokosuka Road to Zushi I / C. Spring back. I would like to take a leisurely tour with my family.
