  • This is one of many temples in the socalled temple quarter (Tera-machi) of Nakatsu. They say the red color was used to cover spilled blood.  more »
  • Great Spot With Black and Red Wall Design...
  • The first thing that stands out are the red walls in the street. Very photographic as are the others nearby.
  • There is a reason why the walls are red. It is a good temple with a history. Why red is there to check!

  • Goganji Kuroda Kanbei moved the Amitabha Nyorai, which is said to have been written by Eshin-Sozu, from Himeji, and built a temple with a monk named Kuyo Kamito on the opening of the mountain. When Utsunomiya Shufusa, who opposed Mr. Kuroda's entry, was invited to death in Nakatsu Castle, Kuroda's hand was also pushed to this Temple where his subseurs were waiting. The subsusmis of the submersis fought hard, but it was all cut down, and the wall was dyed red with its blood. After that, the wall is said to have finally painted red because the blood comes out no matter how many times it is painted white. The temple is also known as Akabedera.
