Mieido (Image Hall)
(see Immortal Wishes, p. 79)
To the right of the Godaimyoo and the kannonsama statues stands the Mieido Image Hall, dedicated to the founder of the shrine. The building contains a lifelike statue of the late founder as well as a special bathtub (ofuro) in which the water of the kami is purified in the Dragon Princess ceremony.
