  • I worship at the 29 / 04 / 2016. Always is the main gate of JR Yokosuka line has been stiffly shut. Admission can be entered from the entrance, past the main gate. Paying 200 yen admission fee, entrance route to go as butsuden, Buddha shrine Temple (karamon), Bell Tower can be seen smoothly. Especially Tokugawa Iemitsu donor unkei made the wooden Amitabha Buddha and oversee the Act natural also wooden Daishi is enshrined. If you open the door you can see in the front. Might as well especially to Buddha Zodiac sculptures since their zodiac to elevens. These are the remains of temple during the Edo period. Counting from Ōta dōkan hidekatsu hospital open in 4 second son Yasushi (yasusuke) daughter. And I'd called, who served Tokugawa Ieyasu. Served as the adoptive mother of the Mito House founder Tokugawa yorifusa, title and wins the British Academy and became a priest after the death of Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu. Shrine built by Mito mitsukuni hidekatsu hospital after his death, the Imperial Palace is the most representative.  Called Mito Palace in the old days, on both sides of the main gate of trefoil Hollyhock is suite main gate open earthen wall of loess is only death of British WINS. From Bach Dang at the back gate of the Wisteria and the JR Yokosuka line also hear here at Valley to wind into the swaying bamboo and bamboo forest entrance might be fun sometimes hear sounds but ruined. Reizei phase (reisenn for final) of mother "izayoi diary" of there was a memorial tower called the grave of author abutsuni.
