Temple history :

Kukai came to the current location of the temple for the first time at the age of 19. He spent most of his time singing sutras and meditating in a cave (Mikurodō) to reach his goal of enlightenment. Some say he would have had enlightenment here for the first time. He returned there at the age of 33 to found Hotsumisaki-ji Temple and carved a statue of Kokuzō Bosatsu. The legend says that it's here in the cave during he  was meditating and observing the sky and the sea that Saeki Mao took the name of Kūkai in reference to the sky (Kū) and the sea (Kai). According to legend, the population suffered from very strong winds in this area. Kūkai went to a cave near the one where he had meditated.The wind turned against him and the rocks then took the form of a corkscrew.
