Hokyoji Temple Reviews
堀川通、堀川寺之内交差点を東へ入ったところにあります。周辺を散策中寄ってみました。宝鏡寺は、人形寺とも呼ばれています、尼門跡寺院です。春と秋の人形展では、由緒ある人形が公開され、賑わうそうです。この時堂内も公開されるそうです。普段は非公開とのことで訪れた時、残念ながら門しか見れませんでした。 more »Horikawa-dori and Horikawa Teranouchi intersection are just east. I stopped by while walking around the area. Hosho-ji Temple is also called Doll Temple, and it is a temple of nunmon ruins. At the spring and autumn doll exhibitions, the historical dolls are open to the public and are very lively. At this time, it seems to be open to the public in the hall. Unfortunately, i could only see the gate when I visited because it was usually closed to the public.
秋の人形展に行ってきました。こじんまりとしたお寺ですが歴代の皇室所縁の寺とのこと。孝明天皇ご遺愛の人形は展示されていましたが、正直、もう少し展示品は多いかと思っていました。堂内は撮影禁止ですが、お庭の紅葉はまずまず綺麗でした。 more »I went to the doll exhibition of autumn. It is a small temple, but it is a temple of the Imperial household edge of successive. The Takaaki Emperor's Love Dolls were exhibited, but honestly, I thought there were a lot more exhibits. It is forbidden to take pictures, but the foliage in the garden was pretty good.
Easy to find. Lovely gardens. Photos not allowed!
I love dolls from an early age. It is close to the temple of the only one type Memorial shrine from Kyoto Imperial Palace. The doll of the beautiful woman like to talk to the gold folding screen in the beauty of the twelve single clothes now. The hand is combined and the mind is calm. Many dolls convey the kindness of women. A more beautiful mirror can be felt by the treasure. The power of the doll's soul is also from everywhere in the temple. The Red seal was also received at Terasa office.
