Monju-do is known as the starting point of the “San-no-sawa” route, one of the popular courses for climbing Mt. Daisen. There used to be a rest station near Monju-do for horses and cattle on their way to Bakuro-za when the horse and cattle market flourished in the Daisen area. Today, the rest station has been changed into a parking lot. It was known that Monju-do, a small red building, was for women to pray to Mt. Daisen from a distance, since women were prohibited from entering Mt. Daisen in the past.
