In olden times, almost every year the nearby Soja River floods over and many people died, so in 815, Kukai perfomed a ritual on its bank and directed the people to create a levee.
In front of the Daishi Hall, there is a pine tree called Furo-matsu said to have been planted by Kukai.
Even after the tree wilts, a new tree emerges.
