  • Kobo Daishi's birthplace, came despite the cold weather, tourist buses or cars. A good five-storied pagoda and sacred tree. I'm relatively empty in the morning.

  • Famous as the birthplace of the master. Pilgrim Temple is Temple, lost in time also ranked out of temple. Initially more widely this city is exactly what street names, this temple to heart and developed areas is. Five-story pagoda is especially great. Overflowed today no compared to other pilgrimage temples and a lot of visitors, pilgrims and tourists. Does not evaluate the temple I in "certain circumstances". Evaluates as "zentsuji"--. I won't dare to write more honestly, in good faith and seems to refuse to post risk listed. Have attached a lot of photos.

  • It's a set of temples built over the birthplace of Kobo Daishi who brought Buddhism to the Japan. Quiet, crowded and with many interesting things. To highlight the passage in darkness under one of the temples.

  • 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.
