  • It is located on a hill near the foot of Mt. Hiei, Ichidai-ji Temple, Sakyo-ku. It is said that Shinran trained for about a year. In the precincts, there was a well in which Shinran reportedly cleansed himself with the water that was coming out of his training. There is another place nearby, Kinfuku-ji Temple, which is a great place to enjoy Kyoto, which is not a tourist attraction.

  • Honganji Kitayama Betsuin is quiet. This is the land of rest of the Shinran Saint. Holy water springs out here. Moreover, the shape of the bell has changed, and the sound of the bell is a solid sound, and it is different from other bells.
