  • We visit the kuroishi-ji Temple in Iwate Prefecture, one of Hiroyuki itsuki's 100. One, is a 40-minute car hire from financial institutions. Gate will not include Temple and climb up the short stairs. Called in advance to visit please call and was an Office, but from women's priest and came out, gave me first of all open the storehouse. Yakushi-Nyorai of the Gohonzon is enshrined. In so 一木造ri of cercidiphyllum japonicum 862, ink inscription in the womb. Gold almost Peel fell and the impressive around the cheeks appear black.

Then visit the temple's main hall, all Gohonzon except Buddha is enshrined in the temple's main hall. Sunlight and Moonlight both Buddhist statue is 12 divine generals.

Myoken myoken Temple, climbed the stairs of the main left hand also frequently broken the myoken Temple key, so recently moved into the main temple. Each Buddha history and meaning for the opening of my solo kindly guide very kindly. It is strongly recommended that enters the head in while reading the Sapporo unit just to visit, and thus directly call to explain entropy is a far cry from the application prior to admission. Before Temple of the 1-to-and was accented with the main hall on the right and the Bell Tower ochre earthen environment. And like dribbling near the Green and dark green. It is a very good Temple nestled in the countryside of Northeastern.

  • 兩年前曾前往觀看黑石蘇民祭,祭典是跨夜舉行的,內容分成三部分中間不連貫(很冷會餓、沒地方休息),惟親身參與方能感受來自異文化的深層悸動。天氣很冷,務必自帶食物。如果不想在氣溫零下的深山中捱餓受凍那麼久,可以考慮搭24點那班接駁車前往觀看後兩部分後,搭清晨的接駁車返回水沢駅。水沢駅附近的旅館建議選大家的連鎖旅館,其餘的幾乎都是愛情賓館之類,品質很差......
