Geocache Description:

Believed to be the birth-place of Prince Shotoku(聖徳太子), this is one of the seven great temples erected by Shotoku in Asuka Period.

The existing temple is from the Edo period, however the beautifully styled tower foundations tell of a prior age.

There is the mysterious stonework of the “Nimenseki(二面石)” (Two-faced stone) in the temple premises.

Stonework of height approximately 1m in which the faces of a man and a woman are carved on opposing sides, thought to represent the two aspects of good and evil in the human consciousness.

※This stone is located in Tachibanadera Temple, for which an entrance fee is required.

The cache is hidden in the parking lot.

In the cache is a log sheet only. Do you think you could bring a pen?
