Shodoji Temple

The youngest son of Minamoto-no-Mitsunaka, Lord of Settsu, was called Bijomaru in his childhood. When Bijomaru was 15 years old, he was so lazy in his studies that he could not read the Buddhist scriptures, not mention about composing a tanka (a 31-syllable Japanese poem) nor playing music, which were necessary accomplishments of a man of the Samurai class. His father, Mitsunaka, therefore found it out in a furry, and ordered his chief vassal, Fujiwara Nakamitsu, to kill Bijomaru by cutting his head.
Nakamitsu, however, instead of cutting the head of Bijomaru, cut the head of his son, Kojumaru, and offered the head to Mitsunaka, and let Bijomaru go off in secret. Bijomaru came to know the fact later, and became a priest in deep remorse. After having led ascetic life, he then became a distinguished priest and built Shodoji Temple to enshrine the spirit of Kojumaru.
The temple with this legend is highlighted by ever-changing scenery of the seasons, from cherry blossoms in spring to vibrant yellows and reds in autumn.
