  • Few tourists could see the Amitabha Buddha in the main hall quietly alone, just around the corner. I enjoy kyakuden garden sitting in the room.

  • Now mountain view of Sakamoto is the head temple of the Tendai Church Temple (psychieouji), from Sakamoto station by bus getting off at the temple Church, about 5 minutes. Bus stop is next to the main gate, is less (about 1 hour one) so entered the main gate from way back in time to see. Car access, parking is next to the main gate. Until the Envoy near gentle ascent through a tunnel of green. I saw good Lake Biwa from founder master of the stairs on the left hand. I can hear Kane enters the temple front yard from here down and climb the stone steps of the left hand, and struck from the temple area evenly. When you visit this temple after about the sound of this Bell was suggested. Admission ticket (500 yen) obtained by breaks out after the main temple honbo, is headed from the honbo kyakuden (important cultural property) from the main building (important cultural property). When entering the main hall in front of the glowing Golden Buddha, Amitabha Buddha sitting image, but the sound of the Bell in "gejin" right hand, monk voice clearly, prayer repeatedly repeatedly disputed was. I thought what Buddha was, but did not look at this practice (不断念 France) and relationship there is the sound of the Bell. Kyakuden called St. Andrew's Palace building was moved from the Hideyoshi Fushimi Castle in 1598, the Interior is dark, fusuma of the Kano school, centrally located outside the protective glass, so it looks better. I thought the bad weather is easy to see. General good luck: the T'ien-T'ai Tsung sheng head 戒光 mountain and against Church Temple (Tendai Shinsei Shu souhonzan kaikouzan kenjossiou psychieouji) as Prince Shotoku built a Goguryeo monk, Kei Megumi, Satoshi Satoshi teacher who allegedly, reconstruction is Jikei Daishi good sources then, Buddha-Dojo. Mind Souzu is Temple, and to prosper since trained Hui Zhen (circle of) Saint (1325 Temple), became the head Temple revived the Mahayana precepts of dengyo Daishi, 1486, Temple of true scale depend on your Temple and law restored, composed and 不断念 anyone have a branch in the country. Akechi Mitsuhide and Church Temple: Mitsuhide during Oda Nobunaga's siege of Mount Hiei (1571), the Church Temple suffered woes, but shortly thereafter became the Sakamoto castle became the tan'ami of the temple Church, devoted great efforts to reconstruction. Sakamoto Castle Gate House of the gate was the bells 陣鐘. Mitsuhide is enshrined along with the tomb of the Akechi clan. Substitute hand white monkey (tejironomasila) story: softer Church Temple mountain: 1493, a riot took place in the Sakamoto Makoto Morita Saint misunderstood and its mastermind, and in the shadows, just heard only the sound of the Bell from the temple. Sohei warriors heard that runs in the main hall, and there was Pat Kane one hand white monkey. Monkey in Hiyoshi-Sanno until 不断念 Buddha's edification, chanting the prayer, or walked off the mountain.

  • Distance walk from Hiyoshi Taisha Shrine and kyakuden and on TV had previously seen and decided to go. Environment, only the exterior tour is the relocated Palace, but their style of the Momoyama period.

  • Great place for no entrance fee and free parking! Yet, historically very important. There is a grave of Akechi Mitsuhide's family.
  • A beautiful and welcoming place.
  • It is a very good thing. Is plenty of attractions. It is recommended to anyone who likes history. In history's villains (? ) That is handled by Akechi Mitsuhide is loved by local people. Akechi Mitsuhide felt at a slightly different angle, try to Church Temple.

  • Sakamoto tourist office is recommended to come I. Nobunaga's troops was unfortunate, but it is who helped rebuild Akechi Mitsuhide. Still will not toll to cordially and Akechi Mitsuhide and 凞 child's grave. It is recommended through the yamanobe road from Higashi-honganji Temple of the Hiyoshi Taisha Shrine, within walking distance. Good views and the way I think.
