■ The meaning behind the logo and name of “Tempu Terrace”
Ichinohashi Tourist Center Co., Ltd. President Homare Baba
“Due to the corona crisis, many people have come to Koyasan in search of healing. Koyasan has been a place where people have been praying for world peace for about 1,200 years since its foundation. We have decided to build a complex facility that will be a new place of healing so that people can visit Koyasan.”
When Kobo Daishi was practicing Shingon Esoteric Buddhism in Tang Dynasty, he was given the name Henjo Kongo. Dainichi Nyorai is another name for Dainichi Nyorai, which means “a mercy that shines bright light like the sun, and a wisdom that is firm and unbreakable like a diamond, like a Buddha who makes people happy.” We wanted to be a place that shines brightly like the sun on the hearts of those who visit and those who are involved.
The thoughts I put into the logo mark are the image of a big sun shining, and the shape of a powerful and shining diamond.
In addition, the black circle, which looks like it is close to the sun, expresses the desire to always be close to customers, just like the word “two companions”, which means that they are always with Kobo Daishi. ■We received a lot of support through crowdfunding.
Due to the unstable world situation, the cost of raw materials soared, and because it was a wooden building designed for cold climates, it turned out that the construction of the “Tempu Terrace” would cost more than expected. We raised funds using crowdfunding, and by October 13, 2022, we collected 5,470,788 yen. This project has been certified as a “Crowdfunding Support Project” by Wakayama Prefecture and a “Koyasan Tourist Attractiveness Improvement Project” by Nankai Electric Railway. ▶︎▶︎Project page URL
