  • I think "Iwama Temple" is located in Shiga Prefecture spot of saigoku 33 pilgrimage, known too much. So say 33 places off the beaten path but know anyone famous Ishiyama temple near the bowler quickly there. I say never heard on sister and her family, mother of considering the block for the family overcame. Is the staff are a little small but ancient history. Candles and incense offerings and feeling quietly hands together a little snow mixed with rain weather could felt pure heart. Sister attracts the nokyo-sho also was grateful.

  • Blessings and to pray, there is direct bus service from the Ishiyama station, got that good information, so on the 17th of every month looking for chance. And I was able to go in September of last year. Chikubu Island (Temple) and JI had done the previous week somehow felt satisfied feeling. But it is not bad... (sorry). I'm one away one building, not great there... (sorry).

  • The temple itself is castles and Super Temple close to 1300. Hard on the way to visit here. Access is very poor. Monthly Ishiyama station shuttle bus drove, it seems everybody has heard only 17 days holiday, and very frequent worshippers number is overwhelmingly a lot with each flight, packed, and. I this is the 8th largest shrine, but most is accompanied to worship in a small group, so this time by chartered bus and parking lot. I heard talking of Dou was a Buddhist temple or something, good luck and legend often feel the history, but a very old, damaged buildings, is the impression that temple. As the temples of Kyoto City Centre does not have bad impressions. 2 nor temple as kinkirakin, BORO was chiika even though not so....
