Hoju-ji Temple Reviews
12月に行われる寺が多いですが、ここは1月です。大根焚きと護摩で1000円。 本日限定のお守り600円でありました。 少し甘めで炊いてある大根はたっぷり入っていました。あと厚揚げです。大根は口に入るととろけて美味しかったです。 本日は、阿弥陀堂の後白河天皇の木造を無料で拝観できラッキー！良いお天気に恵まれ人も次から次とやってきてました！ more »There are many temples held in December, but this is January. It is 1000 yen by the radish firing and the Mamoru. It was a charm of 600 yen for today's limited. It was a little sweet, and the radish which I cooked had plenty. It is thick fried. The daikon radish was melts and delicious when it entered the mouth. Today, I'm lucky to be able to visit the Emperor Shirakawa's wooden house for free! The people who were blessed with the good weather came from next!
平安京末期、後白河上皇がこの寺を中心とした法住寺殿で国政を指揮した場所です。後白河上皇自身、源頼朝公には「日本国第一の大天狗」と揶揄されながら、兄崇徳上皇との抗争、美福門院や平清盛公との確執、木曽義仲や頼朝、義経等源氏同志の対立が有った時代に身を置き生き抜いた人間臭い人物です。後白河上皇の御陵はこの寺の北側に有ります。 more »It is the place where the end of Heian-Kyo and Joko Shirakawa led the national affairs at the Temple of Law. Joko himself, while being ridiculed as "the first great tengu of the country," in the Genyoritomo public, the feud between the brother Takanori Joko, the Feuguage and the Fukiyomori public, Kiso Yoshitaka and Yoritomo, Yoshitsune, etc. is a human-smelly person who survived and lived in the era of conflict. The Mausoleum of Joko Shirakawa is on the north side of this temple.
Right opposite to Sanjusangendo, a small temple with pretty gardening and some lotus.
Right next to Sanjusangendo, free, beautiful, another temple yes but not a waste of time in my point of view :)
