  • We visited Jonan-gu Shrine, walked past Mausoleum of Emperor Shirakawa, and arrived at Anrakuju-in Temple. The temple taught me most of the information on the Ancient Toba area. On our way back to Osa...  more »

Salvation of only escaped the war became headquarters of the Satsuma forces in the battle of Toba-Fushimi, I thought. And comfort is of the contrary-in Temple.

  • Visited on December 23, 2018. The gate of the mountain Gate was shut, and the door of the building which seemed to be a treasure pavilion was closed, and it left this temple with the desire to admire the beautiful garden of the moss by the small in front of Hirohoudaishi Hall and Yakushido, and to be attracted to the hair. But, when I heard the woman of the North Mukaiyama Fudo next door, "The Red Seal should be made". I turned back, and when I rang the phone while I was rude, I received a polite guide. It seems to be good even if it opens though there is no doorbell in the cut door beside the gate. When you dive into the gate, you can see the chime ringing in the back. As you go along the pavement, there is a doorbell at the main hall. I would call you here, but it was just after I called, so I went in as it was. There is a sit chair while we wait for the Red seal, and I feel consideration. Ma'am, or wait for the story after you have your red seal, the public of the Buddha is not enough manpower in the temple is not been a while. Thank you for your polite response to the low waist, apologize for the phone's apology, I left the gate. It was a beautiful temple that has not been sightseeing.

  • We are visiting twice in a special publication. Hoenobu 3 (1137) Toba Joko founder the main shrine of Toba Rikyu again to the Buddhist temple. Principal image is a statue of Amida-Nyorai, the Joko of the Holy Buddha, and it is called "Amida of Swastika" because the swastika is engraved on the chest. In front of the shoin, the dry landscape gardens are in the early Edo period.
