  • Here and Temple of ninna-ji Temple in Kyoto 3 Kobo shrine in advance and, 88 places of pilgrimage on the way safety and health prayer came to. I just pray this year because there are already six wooden deck set. This is a pretty terrible last year and ill and requires a long period of time (about 5 months) outpatient and hospitalization and surgery was finally cured this. Was moving forward each year are Shikoku and Western 遍路 alternating with fitness forever? So when Pilgrim was unable to I at the end of it. Weekdays here are as usual, pine and stunning worshippers no one, even today I just.... Even the Street last year was buried in the snow was dry in fine weather this year, but still cold, but in 10:00 I minus 1 degrees... Sun is shining.

  • It is one of the visited place of Kobo Daishi's [3 Kobo pilgrimage". Ask a priest, sober compared with the East Temple, ninna-ji Temple is less, and is a history of deep Temple.

  •  Listen as one of 3 Kobo, Kyoto and visited. Scale is quite small (narrow) is that the answer is in the greater good, compared to the other 2 places (JI, ninna-ji Temple).  At Temple's community based Pilgrim, though, might be thin especially Kobo Daishi in the devout faith in moving. Mr. cabby picked up incidentally in the kitayama (kitayama-Ohashi bridge) is "divine light Academy? I have heard... ' I went to the divine light Academy crossing ahead of, because it was from the intersection of kitayama Street shichiku kurisu town Omiya area goals where East Street North to hope. Also for city bus and Nishi-Kamo Depot located?  Many bus services from subway Kitaoji Terminal 1 and 37 strains and also 9 strains from the Kyoto station passes through the light hospital Mae Bus stop.    In addition, free admission was (not a scale you can charge admission fee)

  • ** Introduction : Jinko-in Temple is known as Kobo Temple of Nishigamo by the locals. The temple belongs to Shingon sect of Buddhism. This is one of 3 temples in Kyoto associated with Kobo Taishi ( Kukai ) as his sacred ground. Other two temples are Ninnaji in Omuro and Toji near Kyoto station. The place was once called temple of roof tiles since it was resided by an artisan producing roof tiles used for Imperial Palace. It was one summer time when Kukai was 42 years old, Kukai decided to stay in this temple for 90 days for his training. The temple originally established in 1217 by a clerical worker of Kamigamo Shrine when he saw revelatory dream of Kamo Myojin ( deity of Kamo known for the power to control thunder ). He was ordered by Kamo Myojin to build a temple hall at a place where the sacred light was shed from above. Thus this place was named Jinko-in 神光院. 神 deity 光 light 院 temple → A temple where the divine light of Kamo Myojin shines upon. ( Trans-word+ TGM Kyoto Guide )
