Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
See the only 12th-century structure to survive a turbulent Japanese history in its original form at Chuson-ji Temple, a World Heritage Site. Constructed in 1124, the mausoleum, or "Golden Hall", features gold-covered wood inlaid with nacre (mother-of-pearl) and contains the mummified remains of the leader of the Northern Fujiwara clan who ruled much of the northern Japan. Today the Tendai sect governs this Buddhist temple. Step inside to explore the masterfully designed interior, where intricate metalwork, gold and silver illustrations, and iridescent shells cover the pillars, beams, and diases.

古木、大木の中にある寺社の雰囲気が素晴らしく奥州の歴史を感じさせてくれます。 静かな林の中にあるのでひとりでぼんやり歩くにはうってつけでした。 境内は丁寧に手入れされ、ひなびた雰囲気があり金色堂以外は奥州の栄華よりもひっそりとした上品な空気感といったところでした。Temples and shrines located in trees, tree, and the atmosphere was nice history of oshu makes people feel. Well located in a quiet forest walk idly alone. And carefully manicured grounds, in an elegant atmosphere and rustic atmosphere, Golden Temple other than than the glory of the oshu and places.show original
