  • Only almost two months is one familiar to visit temples, in the treasure house the entrance once some years ago. Red stands out here I really is a temple not to my liking, but good just have to respond is the temple. Where sales of goods paid space opening and amulet, saigoku 33 have accepted three Kannon and Luoyang 33 Kannon sacred place where the gods, etc. where a reception stamp or other (staying away), supported by three very good, It is a temple that made visitors aware as other temples also expressionless and orderly. Temple boasts over 1000 years of history is a relatively new towers, is 0/1969, demolished in 1969, repaired the temple compound, etc.. 8000 mud compound and 17-first fudasho's founder, Taira no Kiyomori's image also owns Saint kuya, were found during the repair of the main towers: in the treasure trove of cultural properties of the Heian and Kamakura periods. This enshrines benzaiten of the seven lucky gods's crowded with people, and more people to visit in the new year, particularly in January. Staff also in Group prayer (ritual).

  • So this temple is famous, but not much size, and rather surprising as small. I think is no parking, friendly and helpful, breakfast was visiting. Nearby, there is also no tsuji enma's famous six.

  • Nice petit Buddhism temple. One of the West Japan 33 oldest Buddhism temples. Very close to Kiyomizu temple, only 15-20!minutes by foot.
  • Last Friday February the 3rd, I went to Rokuharamitsu-ji (六波羅蜜寺) in Kyoto, to observe the annual setsubun ceremony. Although the temple grounds are quite small, I thought this is one of the most entertaining setsubun plays. It starts at 15.00 in the afternoon with mamemaki trowing. Followed by a Buddhist prayer service. After a bit a Oni (鬼 or demon) enters and trows a web across the praying Buddhist priest, he also trows them at the spectators. Finally the chief priest trows mamemaki at the demon to trow him out. Then comes the final mamemaki trowing, while shouting “Demons out! Luck in!" (鬼は外! 福は内 - Oni wa soto! Fuku wa uchi!). Maiko, Samurai woman and prominent figures of Kyoto all joint in for the fun.
  • I came here because of Persona 3, the class stayed in the 6HARA inn, which translates to Rokuhara.
  • It is interesting to go inside. There are some famous sculptures/statues there
  • Nice Buddhism temple!
