The priest Kukai (774-835), known later as Kobo Daishi, is said to have founded the Shuzen-ji temple here after discovering the hot spring of Tokko no yu. The entire history of the market town of Shuzenji during the Heian period revolved around this temple, acquiring the dimensions of a Shakespearean tragedy at times. Today, thanks to its natural hot springs and high-quality hotels popular with writers, Shuzenji has no lack of tourist appeal.
