Zentsu-ji is a temple in Zentsuji town, Kagawa that was established in 813, and is the 75th temple in the Shikoku pilgrimage. A monk named Kobo Daishi grew up in this temple, and would go on to become a very influential and important monk in Japan. On the day we visited, June 15th, they were celebrating his birthday. So there were ceremonies being performed inside the temple. I couldn't get any pictures of this, as you are not supposed to take photos inside the temple.

Statue of Kobo Daishi

There were hundred of these statues. Each one unique.

The most amusing was the one of the man cleaning out his ear wax.
