Kashozan Mirokuji Temple

迦葉山弥勒寺

Last updated: December 21, 2020

See Japan’s largest tengu mask

This temple at Mt. Kasho dates back around 850 years. It houses Japan's largest mask of a tengu, a type of red, long-nosed, supernatural goblin from Japanese folklore. The mask has a 6.5-meter face and a 2.8-meter nose.

It is customary to borrow a small mask from the temple when worshiping at Mt. Kasho, then returning it the following year and buying a new mask at the temple shop to donate back.

The temple is magnificent in autumn when the surrounding trees' foliage are at their peak between late October and mid-November.
