  • Buddhism, at sect called was so. Was written a textbook and at peasant's authority maintaining the Temple of instigating people to remember that.  It is a faction here kosho-JI, Motoyama. Building is indeed sober feeling of Shinran in the atmosphere. But I will save all the Amitabha Buddha is like Christ.

  • I originally intended or trying to eat on the koshoji Hall here.... Unfortunately, was closed. Because the extra time to visit again. As usual are wonderful Dou. It is only because it bordered on the Nishi hongan-ji Temple and fence is often mistaken for being so handsome. This library was said either good at the long-cherished desire Temple, said from a favorite? Has to be when previously ginkaku-ji Temple to just visit was, but recently temple one is required must be both together to pray. In the photo please watch each Dou.

  • This temple was one of the prettiest I've visited. Highly recommended to drop by Uji and this temple if you are in the area. Just a short walk from the Uji JR station.
  • Historical temple, beautiful scenery, away from noise and roads.
  • Introducing the ancient temple in Uji kosho-ji Temple. Crossing the bridge from the main tourist byodoin Temple and souvenir shops, walk about 10 minutes upstream in the River Road along the river. You can enjoy the tranquillity is a little away from the bustling area. The entrance is a stone gate. Old red leaf spots is extended straight to the main shrine is called "琴坂", but at the same time blue Maple is excellent. Because it is uphill walk slowly while watching the Green Maple. By Kina Hiroshi main hall, inside of a building can be viewed. Towards the front and go to the right entrance entrance and main. Kina here and take off your shoes and more.

  • Is the founder of Soto Zen master dogen's put himself about two years after returning from China, the first Zen Temple. Now there is revived, but please go to historically significant temples in so far. It was a temple no one for quiet and calm down the mood.
