A good hour away by car from Ise, Kongosho-Ji is a secluded temple hidden on top of Mount Asama, Mie’s highest mountain. Founded in 825 by Kobo Daishi (774~835), a buddhist saint founder of the Shingon or “True Word” school of Buddhism, Kongosho-Ji is in fact a rampart designed to protect Ise Jingu from any spiritual or human threats coming from the north-east of the city.
