Hommyoji ほんみょうじ
Ultimate form of Yudonosan Faith: Sokushinbutsu Honmyokai-shounin eshrined
Sokushinbutsu of Honmyo-shonin is enshrined.
The oldest of 6 sokushinbutsu in shonai; it is said that it is preserved rather undamaged due to his intensive mokujikigyo [fasting practice of meat and grains] while alive.
Nyujozuka [where he became sokushinbutsu] still remains next to Sokushinbutsu-do, along with the stone monument built by his believer.
