Jōdo-ji (浄土寺?) is a Shingon temple in Matsuyama, Japan.

It is Temple 49 on the Shikoku 88 temple pilgrimage.

History

Said to have been founded by Gyōki, Kūya lodged at the temple for three years.

Burned during fighting in 1416, it was rebuilt by the Kōno clan.

Sixteenth-century graffiti indicates that by that time Tendai priests and members of the peasantry had joined the ranks of pilgrims.
