Shinnyo-ji Temple, Kyoto
Shinnyo-ji Temple Reviews
等持院の近くにある、相国寺の山外塔頭の一つです。室町時代には足利尊氏公の執事で有った高師直の保護を受け、高家滅亡後も室町幕府の手厚い保護を受けたようですね。ただ入山は限定され予約が必要となるようです。中が分かりませんので普通にしておきます。 more »It is one of the head of the mountain outside of Aijiji temple, which is near Isodo-in. In the Muromachi period, he received the protection of Takashitadashi, who was the butler of Mr. Takashi Ashikaga, and received a generous protection from the Muromachi shogunate after the high house ruin. However, the Iriyama is limited and the reservation is necessary. Because I do not understand the inside, I leave it normally.
「真如寺」と書いた西側にある出入り口がオープンだったので、入りましたが、途中でチェーンが張ってあり、それ以上は進めませんでした。引き返して南側に回るともうひとつ門があって、こちらはかっちりと閉まっていました。最初は行ったところは通用門みたいですね。結局一般拝観はしていないようでしたが、参道の雰囲気からすると昔は境内ももっと広かったのではないかと思われます。 more »And put the chain in the Middle West wrote shinnyo Temple doorway was opened, so that the it could not advance further. Turned back around to the South and another gate, was closed with exceptions here. It is like a gate we went first. You are after all general admission in did not seem, judging from the atmosphere of old precinct was more broad and it seems.
Open to the public every year from January to mid-March, and in other season available by appointment, Shinnyoji is an amazing example of a gorgeous historic temple. The grounds are famous for the Iris ponds in the spring and the Momiji trees in the fall. In May every year, there is an open festival market. There are also scheduled meditations, tea ceremonies, and other special events. A fantastic place!
It was a very lovely stay. It was a little early for the autumnal leaves, but it was very good 😊
