  • First, the temple is so amazing. The place is very historical and famous temple in Japan.I heard that this temple has one of the biggest “jizo statue” in Japan. They have garden of scenic beauty which is Japanese traditional garden that you imagine. The one thing that you should know is... owner of this temple can understand little more English so that’s really helpful for tourists. I love this place.
  • Free entry to the temple grounds. One of the attractions is a large outdoor Buddha statue. Possible to walk through the ground during the evening. Evening is even quieter than daytime and creates a nice atmosphere, although no places for sitting.
  • The denomination is a formal name in Tokizune and is called Long Inori Yama Joshin-ji temple. A copy of the Jizo Bodhisattva, a principal image, was erected as a statue of 6m in the precincts. The bronze statue was ordered to exception during World War II, but it is a miraculous jizo who escaped exception with the help of the priest and the wife of Eiji Tojo at the time. There is a profit of the eye, and a lot of scapegoat frog which shut one eye is dedicated at the foot of the Jizo-like. I also do a memorial for old glasses. Because it is a temple in the city area, the precincts are not so wide, but various gods and Buddhas are enshrined all over the place. I think that it is possible to worship according to the profit and the spiritual trial. At seven in the morning, I visited my own birthday, but I was greeted by the number of baseball club members who attended Yuka High School in the neighborhood. There are only prestigious schools that have gone to Koshien, and education is thorough. The town and the high school also had a favorable impression.

  • At the time of the Jizo basin of summer with a large jizo, stalls are crowded out to the approach. Because there is a profit concerning the health of the body such as eyes, it seems to be good to dedicate a frog of a scapegoat pottery.

  • It was convenient to park in the second parking lot at the back of the precincts, but it was the size that only few can park. It seems to be the first and third. The Jizo basin was too far in September, so I was able to slow down people. In the floor of the Temple of Jizo-in, there was also a number of horns and there are many circles around, so why did you enjoy (or drumstick) there is a shoin that greeted the Emperor Meiji in the precincts, transom the emblem of Chrysanthemum is carved to the back Japan garden is quiet wrapped It seemed that time passed slowly. I write my favorite one character (Luo of the Heart Sutra) from the inside, and have dedicated it to the back Jizo son while praying for false sickness.
