８５０年の大昔に滋覚大師がこの地で「白鹿の幻に遭遇して」建立したそうだ。「もうえつじ」と呼ぶのではなく、地元では「もうつうじ」と呼んでいる。私は、お寺も由緒があって良いが、その面前に広がる「大泉が池（おおいずみがいけ）」は、是非に見て欲しい。ここでは池に浮かべる船があるが、その船も昔の中国風でカラフルな装飾だ。850 years ago, Taishi in "visions of pengzhou encountered" and likely was built. See again no tsuji "and rather than call, locally known as"runs another". I good historical temples, their presence spreads "oizumi's pond (House of representatives don't)", I want to come see. Ships float in a pond here, but the ship is decorated with colorful ancient Chinese-style.show original

Beautiful temple! There were a lot of people there because of New Year's, but it was still very fun. The frozen pond was breathtaking.
The Temple, surrounding landscape and garden streams are beautiful!! We were fortunate to be there while the irises were in bloom. A sublime spectacle.
A wide-open park and temple.
きみたんIt is just pure land gardens. Blue Sky reflected in the mirror-like surface of the water and white clouds, trees and greenery. Standing quietly and forget the passage of time. Song water to the left while pond round up and there is a Bell Tower and goes around. Homa-Thu 4 character kanji in wishes, once the can is the Bell Tower at 500 yen. Sound was very solemn and will blot in the heart. Around the extension, in a solemn tone sound, clean and all that impressed. Also from hiraizumi station 700 m, slowly walked about 15 minutes, so we luxuriate on foot.show original
