Near Kotoden Busshozan station is the Onari-Kaido, a road that served as the pilgrimage path to Honenji for the local rulers during the Edo period. (Onari means the arrival or departure of a person of high rank.) Every year this history is celebrated at the Fall Festival, where people dress as the daimyo local rulers and make a procession up this road.
At Honenji you can see a reclining Buddha and a 5-tiered pagoda that was just finished in 2011.
