Ganjin (Jianzhen) was a Chinese monk who was invited by Emperor Shomu and helped to propagate Buddhism in Japan.
Making the voyage to Japan at that time was very difficult and he failed 5 times. On the 6th time he lost his eyesight, but he came to japan, at last in 753, arriving in Akime in Bonotsu.
