Tachibanadera Temple

橘寺

Founded in AD606, this temple is built on the site believed to be the birthplace of Prince Shotoku, who was a strong supporter of Buddhism in Japan. Most of the temple was rebuilt in the Edo period. Within the complex, there is a mysterious stone, about 1 metre high, which predates the buildings, called the Nimenseki. Carved with the face of a man and a woman, it is thought to represent the two faces of humanity: good and evil.
