Honryuji Temple Reviews
肝心の重文の本堂とか祖師堂は全面的に工事中でした。囲いで何にも見られない。東側入口からだと門まで囲ってあって・・・南側の山門はかろうじて立派な装飾が窺えたが。法華宗真門流の総本山らしいが、江戸時代の周辺の大火にも焼失しなかったことより「不焼寺」(やけずのてら)との別称もあるらしい・・・。本堂の写真だけは以前に参拝した時のものです。 more »The main hall of the essential heavy sentence and the soshido were under construction completely. I can't see anything in the fence. From the east entrance, it was surrounded to the gate... the south gate was barely a splendid decoration. It seems to be the sohonyama of the Hoka Sect shinmon-ryu, but there seems to be another name with "Unyaki-ji temple" from the large fire in the vicinity of the Edo period. Only the photograph of the main hall is the one when it visited before.
本隆寺は西陣地区にある法華宗真門流の総本山です。広い敷地のお寺です。このお寺も桜の隠れた名所だそうです。ですが今大改修工事中です。外の土塀が独特で凝っていました。瓦が埋め込まれています。 more »Honryuji Temple is the main mountain of the Hoka Sect Shinmon-ryu in the Nishijin district.
