The main hall (hondô) of Manshû-ji.
  • Japanese': 満舟寺 (Manshuu-ji)

Manshû-ji is a Buddhist temple in Mitarai, Hiroshima prefecture, said to have been founded by Taira no Kiyomori when, caught in a storm on his way to Kyoto, he came ashore there. Images enshrined there include one of the bodhisattva Jizô associated with the curing of disease, and one of the 11-headed bodhisattva Kannon.

The temple grounds include the grave of haikai poet Kurita Chodô. A hengaku plaque hanging in the main hall of the temple was created by Kurita copying a work of calligraphy by Ryukyuan scholar-official Ryô Kôchi; the original work of calligraphy is also in the temple's collection.[1]
