Horinji Temple Reviews
입구와 통행로가 좀 을씨년 스럽긴 하지만 올라가서보면 생각이 바뀐다. 전망대 형식으로 테라스가 되어있어 내려다보면 아라시야마의 모습이 보이는데 높지않아도 생각보다 좋은 뷰가 펼쳐진다. more »««How to get to the entrance and passage, but if you look at Mr. climbed up the idea. The Observatory's terrace in the format looks do not look of Arashiyama look than you think a good view.
法輪寺の元のお寺は元明天皇の勅願により７１３年創建されたということですから藤原京から平城京に遷都してから間もないころです。周辺は秦氏一族が治めていて何かと繁栄していたのは分かりますがなぜ奈良から遠いこの地にと不思議に思いました。現在は真言宗のお寺で知恵の神様が祀られており、芸事の上達にもご利益が有るそうです。阪急荒山駅が最寄りですが結構急な階段が有ります。ただ登ると結構いい景色が見えますよ。 more »From in the heijo-Kyo capital from Fujiwara-Kyo means temple Gong Temple which was built in 713, Emperor montoku's infancy. Thought is understood and reign the Hata clan, was thriving and something is why NARA from this distant and mysterious. Now has wisdom God is enshrined at the Temple of the Shingon sect of Buddhism, so there are blessings to the improvement of the traditional Japanese arts. Preferred station on Hankyu kozen is fine there are steep stairs. Looks pretty nice views and climb.
A very quiet and not popularly visited temple. "Constructed by Gyōki in 713 AD, and was originally named Kadonoi-dera (葛井寺). It is dedicated to Ākāśagarbha, the bodhisattva of the boundless space." It is one of the Thirteen Buddhist Sites of Kyoto. From what I could surmise from my visit and the Kanji I read, the temple has to do with electricity. So you might pay a visit to such a temple if you are performing electrical work, or are an electrician etc. to pray for the development of all electric related business relating to electricity, radio waves, electronics, and for no accidents relating to these (safety).
One of the most beautiful and least visited places in Arashiyama. The side-entrance is also worth walking up from.
