Temple 57, Eifuku-ji

Eifuku-ji is temple No. 57 on the Shikoku pilgrimage. The temple is located in the countryside outside of Imabari, in a beautiful bamboo grove.

On the hill above the temple is a Shinto shrine which used to be part of the same complex before Buddhism and Shinto were separated. The shrine affords a panoramic view over Imabari and the Seto Inland Sea. Both the shrine and the temple are popular places to pray for safety at sea. The ashes of incense burned at the Yakushido are believed to offer protection from illness.

The temple was the location for the film “I Am a Monk”.
