Jyorakuji Temple

Jyorakuji Temple enshrines the great doctor Nakano Chigen who vanished in 1190. Nakano Chigen is said to have conducted the first autopsy in Japan in order to determine the cause of his daughter's illness. He was later granted the name "Rokujison" as a reward for successfully healing the illness of Gotoba Joko. It is said that the god of thunder Raijin healed illnesses by inhaling moxa, so the temple is also known as a temple for protection against lightning.
