General Description:

The road from Shosanji (T12) to Dainichiji (T13) is divided at Nabeiwa Village. The hut is located on the northern most of those two routes. The north route goes through the Tamaga Pass and is the shorter of the two, The hut is about four kilometeres from Nabeiwa village and seven kilometres from Shosanji (T12). It is 15 kilometres short of Dainichiji (T13).

The shape of the hut is triangular to represent a bird taking off.

Arguably the Henro hut with the most spectacular view in all Shikoku!

This hut is moderate in size, with a resting area level with the roadway and toilet facilities underneath, which can be accessed by a flight of stairs. During a visit in April 2019 the toilets were closed (unknown if this was permanent or temporary).

The location is on the steep side of a hill in a rural area. There are a few nearby houses, but no stores or other infrastructure. The road is directly adjacent to the hut, but there is very little traffic on it. When approached from the direction of temple 12, the hut interior is fully exposed as there are only two half height walls. All occupants are clearly visible. A triangular roof means that the main hut resting area would not be well protected from windy rain coming from the south (up from the valley).
