Junenji Temple Reviews
ちょっとそこまで、「十念寺」ヘ ！ 南北に通る寺町通りは豊臣秀吉の京都改造で寺院が集められたところです。現在も多くの寺院が残っているそのひとつです。 室町幕府第6代将軍足利義教が1431年に宝樹院として創建したのが始まりで豊臣秀吉によって現在の地移されました。 驚いたのは仏教寺院の本堂とは思えない鉄筋コンクリート造りです。ちゃんと屋根には鳳凰がありました。境内は工事中のようでした。 more »A little up there, "Jusenji" he! The temple street which passes to the north and south is the place where the temple was gathered by the Kyoto remodeling of Toyotomi Hideyoshi. Many temples remain today. It was founded in 1431 by Yoshinori Ashikaga, the 6th Shogun of the Muromachi Shogunate, and was relocated to the present land by Hideyoshi Toyotomi. What surprised me was the reinforced concrete construction, which is not thought to be the main temple of a Buddhist temple. There was a phoenix neatly on the roof. The precincts seemed to be under construction.
３月下旬に訪れました。昨年は境内に入れませんでしたが、今年は入ることができました。本堂内の阿弥陀如来は拝むことができました。山門の外からは現代的な本堂が目を引きますが、境内に入ると、小振りではありますが庭園も素敵でした。 more »I visited at the end of March. I didn't enter the precincts last year, but this year I was able to get in. Amida Buddha in the main hall was able to worship. From the outside of the temple gate, the modern main hall is eye-catching, but when you enter the precincts, the garden was also wonderful though it was a small swing.
