  • Was near the hotel so went to the shrine early in the morning. "福" character, so color rich Buddhist temple, and little different aspect if you. While in the Temple of Japan, but the pattern of the glazed wall which leads to the red door of the ten'noden and the cemetery is obviously a Tang dynasty style taste. The old temple of the Obaku Zen Temple was founded because of the high priest of Japan unlike if I looked into after the origin of the Foundation called Nagasaki co.* Temple sofuku-JI and Kofuku-ji and Kofuku-ji, in 1677, the Nagasaki magistrate and resident Chinese Tang monk by teaching. It was a Buddhist temple! 4 wing gate, 大雄宝殿 ten'noden (Buddha combined gate), Bell is a nationally designated important cultural properties. Bell city and Prefecture cultural asset in many, are counted in the Nagasaki 4-ji Temple. Never Sakamoto ryoma iroha-Maru incident he places and got detailed written description plate at the entrance. Feel the touch of the proprietary Wabi and Sabi Temple was.
