"Kannon Reigen Ki" (The Stories about the Miracles by Bodhisattva Kannon). Kachi-o temple in Settsu province. No. 23 of the Seikoku Pilgrimage Route.

The hair of queen of Baekje, Paekche (Kudara in Japanese) became white for no known reason. She tried all the remedies possible but to no avail. One night, she had a dream of kannon of the Kachi-o temple in Japan. She prayed to the kannon in the direction of the Kachi-o temple. Her hair became lustrous and black again. The king and the queen of Paekche were so pleased that they sent two envoys with precious gifts to the Kachi-o temple.
