Hase-Kannon Temple, Japan

The traditional story of the origins of this temple states that in 721, the pious monk Tokudou discovered a camphor tree, from which he carved two images of Kannon (deities). The Kannon sculpted from the lower half of the camphor tree was enshrined in Hase-dera in the province of Yamato. The other was set adrift in the sea to find the place that it had a karmic connection with. The statue washed ashore on Nagai Beach on the Miura Peninsula near Kamakura in the year 736 and was brought to Kamakura where a temple was built to honor it.
