The temples of Rokugo Manzan are divided into six areas surrounding Mount Futago located at the center of the Kunisaki Peninsula in Oita Prefecture, Japan. The elements of Buddhism, Shintoism and mountain worship contribute to form a special local religious culture in this area. Stone statues of Buddha and other deities are the key characteristic in this culture, which many believe the carving of religious stone statues originated from this area in Japan. Many of the temples can be traced back as far as 1300 years ago including Futagoji Temple at the peak of Mount Futago. The pair of stone Nio Guardians guards this Buddhism temple which enshrines the thousand armed Kannon Buddha in the Okunoin Hall and Fudomoyoo in the Gomado Hall. While at Fukiji Temple, whose main hall is regarded as the oldest wooden structure in Kyushu located southwest of Futagoji Temple, offer travelers a calming atmosphere in a world of green. The Makiodo display varies wooden statues of Buddhism figures including Amida Buddha and Fudomyoo. Travelers can view the signature of Rokugo Manzan religion at Kumano Magaibutsu Stone Buddha, where the Dainichi Buddha is carved onto the cliff at this location. It is considered to be the largest Buddhist stone carving in Japan, but isn’t as famous as the Usuki Stone Buddha, which are more intricately inscribed into the stone walls and designated as National Treasures of Japan.
