The Negoro-ji complex of Buddhist temples stands on the side of, and is surrounded by, the sacred peaks of the Katsuragi Mountains which dominate the horizon at the northern end of the city of Iwade, Wakayama in Japan.In 1087, a man named En no Gyōja established this area as a center for promoting Buddhism. Hōfuku-ji, as it was originally called, was built with the contributions of a devotee known as Hōfuku-Chōja who lived in the vicinity.In 1132, the Ex-Emperor Toba donated this temple, along with nearby manors, to the famous high priest Kōgyō Daishi; this new estate was called Ichijō-zan Daidenpon Negoro-ji. Kōgyō-Daishi, widely renowned as the restorer of the Shingon sect of Buddhism, moved here with his pupils, from Mount Kōya.After settling at Negoro-ji, Kōgyō-Daishi laid out his far-sighted plans and initiated the construction of the Enmyō-ji and Jingū-ji within the Negoro-ji temple grounds. Even after his death, in 1143, the Negoro-ji complex was influential and prosperous as the head seminary for Shingi sect of Shingon Buddhism for another 200 years or so. During the height of its influence in the late Muromachi period, about 2700 temples stood on the mountainside in the spacious grounds of Negoro-ji.In 1585 however, every building except the main pagoda, and a few others, were burnt down during the Siege of Negoro-ji by Toyotomi Hideyoshi, who feared the growing military power of the priesthood and the Negoro-gumi, warrior monks of the temple, who were skilled in the use of firearms.With our world travel planner, Iwade attractions like Negoro-ji can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

真言宗の寺院としては珍しい2つの宗派の総本山が交代で運営する寺院です。 総本山の上に総本山があるといった奇妙な形態です。 元々、根来寺は小さな寺院でしたが、新義真言宗の開祖である興教大師覚鑁（かくばん）が高野山を追い出され根来寺に来たことで古儀真言宗である高野山から独立した新しい宗派をこの地で作りました。 元々覚鑁は高野山の僧でしたが、その当時、高野山の戒律等は堕落しており才能があった覚鑁によって... read more »
