  • Come on Pilgrim. I mean, come many times. It is one of the favorite during the pilgrimage Temple. Birth place of Kobo Daishi Temple, temples and attractions and, over time, you want to go. Patients treated like there usual tourist destination visited by many people, but, truly a Kobo Daishi's miracle? Every time I come I see. Clients in one day if the ABCs of vacant House, there is a TV room, embellish my house like, with hot spring baths are large, slowly Dim after a tiring journey. It is to cleanse all sins were committed to knowing you let the sound of the scepter from the grace of Acharya morning from 6 a.m. and worked in a Chinese teacher is the Kobo Daishi, just listen to the sound. Pilgrim, even staying at shukubo, you want to taste that atmosphere.

  • 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.

  • Zentsuji and the birthplace of Kukai (West of) the is. Tō-ji Temple and Koyasan is together called three sacred sites. West hospital is divided into the East and the West of that area, Temple five-story pagoda of the original East hospital, was appointed after the restoration. It seems people come walking from JR zentsuji I came by car. 20-it takes about 30 minutes. Your garden is beautiful.
