  • We visit the 11/2017. What you see about 5 times. Sometimes we went on foot from Kintetsu Shin-Omiya station, walked away from the Kintetsu saidaiji station. Was able to visit the statue of eleven-headed of the Gohonzon is at special public. I think it certainly will be published in the spring. That 5 turrets being enshrined in the West Hall as a national treasure, Gohonzon, West Hall and library are designated nationally. It seems to temple was built by the Empress Komyo's prayer now called Temple nook and corner of the Sea Dragon King temple, according to the auspicious 0/731 (731).

  • When entering the narrow approach of the uphill from the constant sound of go-go and the car road pass through the gate of the Temple a taste of out of this world. Visit the national eleven-faced Kannon in the Special Exposition. This is a coquettish beautiful goddess, my head is spinning.
