Myojoin
Myojoin Myojoin
‘Myojoin’ is the oldest wooded structure in Goto. It features a magnificent ceiling, decorated with 121 intricate pictures!

It was given its name in 806 by Kukai, the famous Buddhist priest who visited Goto.

One day, while praying for the locals and wishing them a better life, he was greeted by a bright star, shimmering in the sky above.

He took inspiration from this, and named the temple the 'bright star temple' or the ‘Myojoin’.
