  • "Working" complex of temples - solemn yet colorful. Lots of lovely ojizo (clothed rocks). Serene and quiet, though probably will have many visitors in season.
  • Sekizan Zen-in is situated in Shugaku-in ( the Northeast of Kyoto ). It is a direction from which the evil influences are likely to come. According to the yin-yan philosophy the temple gate is called "Omote Kimon" (Outer demon gate) which is used as protection from the bad luck coming through the gates. The temple is known for being a part of the pilgrimage to the "Seven Lucky Gods" and its profound history of more than 1100 years. It was founded by Enrin in 888 AD it belongs to a Tendai sect of Buddhism unique to Enryakuji Temple located on Mt. Hiei. TGM Kyoto Guide
  • Fukurokuju, who is the one of the seven lucky gods, is in this temple.
  • Very good impressions of MOSS and Woods. That is very uphill walk from shugakuin station. The buses are smaller. Was it justice if in some places, such as benches, want relaxed feeling however, nokyo-sho to receive care. Wrote two kinds of nokyo-Sho is written paper across the back (rough is) is the first and the second I disconnected the shogunate. Had been written next to those of you on the same mark were pressed firmly. I think if you write good female attire of the temple and you can clearly see is.
