Shuzen-ji Temple, Izu
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Explore the Zen Buddhist Shuzen-ji Temple, the historic scene of death and tragedy in the Minamoto family. Reputedly founded by revered religious personality Kobo Daishi (who also supposedly created the township's hot springs by striking rocks with his stick) in 807 CE, the site became infamous after witnessing the suicide and assassination of two generations of Minamoto family patriarchs, around the turn of the 13th century. Nowadays, the site is thankfully a lot more peaceful. You can take part in meditation classes on Tuesdays from 9 am, and relax in the peaceful grounds. Look out for a picturesque bamboo forest nearby. Use our Izu holiday planner to visit Shuzen-ji Temple on your trip to Izu, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

禅宗のお寺らしく朝から掃除されてたり 庭もとても綺麗でした。ほんと、自分の住んでる地域とは全く違う高尚な文化を感じる。Or been cleaned from the morning like a Zen Temple, the garden was very nice. Really feel the lofty culture is quite different from the lives of their community.show original

まず入口です。境内までの階段はそれほどではないですから普段運動していない方でも大丈夫でしょう。 でも足腰が悪い方は階段ではなく左の道を行った方が良いと思います。 境内に入ってすぐ右側で手を清めるのですが、これが大師の湯というパワースポットでお湯になっています。 知らないとびっくりの温度で、さすが修善寺温泉です。The first is the entrance. Stairs to the environment is not so much so even if you're not normally exercise it. But I think better is physique bad stairs, not down the road on the left. Into the environment, in the right hands to purify is this power spots of Master Yu is in hot water. And don't know about surprised at, is indeed Shuzenji hot springs.show original
