  • It is a separate hospital by The Blue Lotus House, but because it cannot go directly from The Blue Lotus Academy, it is a complete lysite spot. The landmark of the "Former Three Great Masters" in front of Awata Sanso is a landmark. The view is good because it is on a hill, but the precincts are narrow and there is nothing except the main hall. At the back of the precincts is a road leading to The ShogunTsuka Seiryuden on the mountain, which is the precincts of The Blue Lotus Temple.

  • In the way of Kyoto trail you will pass this nice small temple in the mountains. A peacefull place to rest in the way.
  • The signpost of the stone on the way is "Motozo Daishi" and "Koshin ADO". Located on the hillside of Awada shrine, a little Sakaue (the road directly from the shrine is closed, so we went down the hill and went up the hill next to the Shoren-in side). Photography is not allowed inside the main hall. The inner and outer is separated by a wooden frame, and the inner is dark and the image of the Morbutsu is difficult to see with the naked eye. Still, it is very beautiful, and the image of the Koshin son can be seen (the extent that the reflection light at the time of fine weather is barely observed even if a single spectacle is used). There was a guide to the preservation Memorial held from 11:00 on the third of every month.
