  • A little up there, "Honmeiji" It was in the place where it went down to Tomikoji street when taking a walk in Gojo Street. It is said that this temple is the site of the Rokujo Kawarain mansion in Genfu, and its origin dates back to the Heian period. In the temple of the Jodo Sect, the main temple is the Amida Tathagata, and it is the no. 48 tag place of the Luoyang 48 wish estate site tour. In the precincts, there are main halls, the gate, bell towers, and the tomb of The Green Character Shop Self-Laughter, which is home to the statue of Amida Buddha.

  • The temple itself is the foundation of the Kamakura year, but this place will be the ruins of Emperor Saga's mansion. It is said that he made sea water from Osaka Bay to Shiogama the scenery of Miyagi prefecture. I know from the name of the address. It was a temple of Jodo sect and it was a big temple in the Muromachi period. It seems to be open to the public now.
