Nose Mt. Myoken
Mt. Myoken is a vital part of Nose. Mt. Myoken forms part of Kawanishi City (Hyogo Prefecture), Toyono Town and Nose Town (both located in Toyono-gun, Osaka Prefecture) and is 660 meters in height. On the top of the mountain is Myokengu Temple, a temple belonging to Nichiren Buddhism. The temple's formal name is Murozan Shinnyoji Keigai Buddhist Temple Nose Mount Myoken. It is said that the temple was established by Gyoki, a monk, in the Nara era (710-794). Subsequently Yoritsugu Nose, who rejuvenated the family of Nose, enshrined Myoken Bodhisattva in this temple to create a guardian deity. On the right side of the torii (at the entrance), a bronze statue of Yoritsugu Nose stands. Today, the temple is well known as the wonder-working "Nose no Myoken-san," and many visitors come to pray for education, traffic safety, rich harvest and so on. Visitors can take the cable and lift from the southern foot of the mountain or go there by car. Many events are held all year around and visitors can fully enjoy the beauty of nature, including hydrangeas, cherry blossoms, autumnal leaves and snow scenes, according to the season.
