  • Pilgrimage Tour in West hospital and sand stomping. Also Pilgrim 75th Temple, so the grounds dressed pilgrims often. Precinct also boasts large, peaceful time, feeling calm down. Especially your tree of the giant camphor tree power, otherwise I like. (^ ^)b

  • 23/09/2014 zentsuji is Kobo Daishi's birthplace. The head temple of the Shingon sect and zentsuji. Along with the Temple of Koyasan, Kyoto is one of three major temples. Simulates the seashore with Tang to be erected the family Temple of the ancestors Kobo Daishi 807 years, returned home from the Tang dynasty, was built. Named after the mountain range towards the West five mountains of Mt. 5, stipulated in the Shikoku pilgrimage. Zentsuji came last, so go to the main building smoothly from the parking lot. On the way from daishido at home in the parking lot, we (13:44) sanuki Kannon sacred place 25 saw the number of JI hospital, (14:00) eventhough how bread "how to bread" and bent beside the temple came, I made a mistake the home I bought "potato, rain". Zentsuji is very clean environment, to move. Next goes to the temple.

In the quickly, and sand stomping. You can installed miniature antelope here and over at once. Daishido. Here are placed kaidan'in around. First of all, head to the main hall. At Temple University has been fitted with a straw sandals. The main hall. In the spacious grounds, towering pagoda also. Camphor is this area from the age of Kukai. Several hundred thousand years old; Gohyakurakan with surroundings. Daishido avoid return visits. Also of course kaidan'in tour. And then visited the Museum. Back in the parking lot. On this mountain seems round mini 88. 5 Mt. longitudinal directions. It's sometime traverse and like you want to.
