  •  This temple is in the deep heart of the kizugawa. Atmosphere guests pond, Temple, Pagoda Temple the temple area is not vast, is the microcosm and want to express it. Visited on this day, not only here in Temple, Kizu's temple receives something impression. Kyoto, Japan seems like a drift to maintain presence in between to 2 great Buddha of NARA's treasures. As a wandering in the mountains is explained in the main hall of Buddhist temple in Nara and up deeply, it is because with the Buddha. Watched the statue of Amida Nyorai Buddha main hall at the, as I want to be plump and chiseled look. < Kansai flower Temple 25 sacred places &gt; for going there even one, season permitting. Became concerned about the temple directly may not be that, that parking lot. Buddha also as a over parking needs are high or even might throw rates post in the poster today fee is 300 yen < tells &gt; was. In the business hospitality and atmosphere around the rural poor a little blanket with.

  • Quietly nestled on the outskirts of Kyoto, Nara Prefecture, near the border of the tourism and the relation of such rock Temple. This season, visitors rarely or garden for my wife and I alone, began to open the rhododendron season, the Red three-storied pagoda stands quietly. Feel have slipped in the past when I visited 30 years ago, and nothing will change, and became mysterious feelings. It was a taste of many attractions, such as the mysterious Buddha statue also in the main hall tower with a respectable Amitabha Buddha in 3 m more than he was to ride the temple.

  • Before visiting the Joruri-ji Temple by taxi because I missed the bus from Kintetsu NARA STA., first of all, to the Temple of the Shingon ritsu sect Takao Mountain Rock boat. Honzon Amida Buddha as well as the Fugen is the guardian of the two as home to visit. According to the history of the temple, was founded by Emperor Shomu 0/729 (729), are reported. Peace during Amida Nyorai Buddha, bodhisattva elephant, Kamakura period to 13 stone pagodas and gorintou, during the Muromachi period in the three-storied pagoda (both important cultural property) was built. Sky pagoda near the mountains from the fresh green of early summer, autumn leaves, giving depth to the environment. Unfortunately this leaves were scattered leaves. And hydrangeas planted around the grounds are beautiful hydrangea Temple known as.

  • An amazing temple in the mountains south of Kyoto. Best accessed by car and only paid parking is available. The large seated Amida statue is older than the famous one at Byodo-in. There is also a bright red pagoda nestled in a valley. The hydrangea in June are particularly famous. Hiking courses that take in Buddhist rock carvings extend into the surrounding hills. A bit on the Japanese tourist trail, but its location ensures a bit of quiet.
  • Priest is talkative, good hand. Talk about funny. Enjoy the atmosphere of the temple —. Buddhist art fans are recommended. Here explore the old road as a starting point. Want to see jizo, laughing Buddha, sleep. Goals, showed 9 Buddhist pure land Temple, doll!.

  • We visit the 12/2017. Until now on foot from Joruri Joruri, has this time back on the bus. 1 hour 1. It came in handy!. Iwafune-Temple 0/729 (729) by order of Emperor shōmu gyoki was established by it. Gohonzon at the Amitabha Buddha sitting image, about 3 m high statue of zelkova serrata Makino 一木造ri it seems. He said construction of the 0/946 (946). Statue of tamonten statue in the Yamaguchi Prefectural Museum exhibition seems. When I visited for the first time is still the three-storied pagoda like that bruises and not to color? When I was a 0/1975 it is.

  • We visited in late July. Hydrangeas bloomed yet, but was about the end. Went by car, leave the Temple Road is quite narrow, pretty note is required. Just inside the gate and looks back on both sides of the approach of pagoda. Amida Buddha are enshrined in the not-so-great main hall. Demon supporting the rafters humorously at the corners of the pagoda with bright orange-red. Many temples in the South yamashiro country not be flashy but quaint because public transportation is not good but once visit?.
