Visit Notes

Anrakuji-yakata was the kyokan of Iwaharajō. It is named for the temple built there later, of which clear ruins remain, including a very large and impressive chunk of ishigaki (stone-piled wall). This mighty ishigaki, a corner segment, bulges dangeorusly on one side, however, and I fear a powerful enough earthquake could dislodge it. More artifacts of the temple are found in the neighbourhood, including old tomb stones and a relocated hōkyōintō (宝篋印塔), which is a type of stone stupa.
