The Issaikyô are a set of sutras printed in Korea and granted by the Joseon royal court to Sô Sadamori, lord of Tsushima, at Sadamori's request.

Sadamori presented the sutras to a Hachiman Shrine on Tsushima in 1449. In the late 16th century, these sutras later came into the possession of Ishida Mitsunari, who presented them to Kongôbu-ji, a temple on Mt. Kôya (Kôya-san), where they remain today.
