This stone-built Hokyointo (a type of Japanees pagoda) was built around 700 years ago in the late Kamakura period and has been classified as a National Historic Site and an Important Cultural Property. The area around Shojin Pond, where this pagoda was built, served as a route over Hakone on the road connecting Kyoto and Kamakura at that time. This section was once feared as "hell" because of its severely steep mountain passages and desolate landscape with plumes of smoke emanating from many places, making this area a sacred place for the Jizo faith. Most of the Jizo stone statues and pagodas around the Shojin Pond were built in the late Kamakura period (1185-1333) as a result of this Jizo belief to protect the travelers as they traversed this area.
