  • On the 16th, I visited Amanohashidate, stayed overnight at the Amanohashidate Hotel next to Chionji Temple, and visited Chionji the next morning. The neat and organized precincts were fresh, and i felt like i had been washed and given wisdom.

  • From the explanatory materials, it is a temple where the issue of "Millions of People" was given to the temple because it ruled the plague by doing a million people in The Buddha by the command of Emperor Godaigo. It seems to have become Achionji from "knowing" "Kindness" to the person on the law, but i thought by chance what the meaning of Chion-in is. The precincts are also splendid, the cathedral is large, and there are several togo temples. At the time of the visit, the general gate was repaired and it was a visit from the west gate. The outside is full of car noise, but once you step in, it's like a different world.
