  • I came to Kenninji in accordance with the special release of the Foot Academy. There was a little time, so I was in the southwest when I was hanging around the precincts. It seems to be time of the war of the Kamakura shogunate ending just because it is built in the former Hiroshi year. It is not open yet, but it is possible to go to the next Kaitendo, and there is a standing signboard. The front yard seen from the gate was neatly maintained.

  • Because it is the one that the heat haze was deification, it is not caught, it does not burn, it does not jerk, and it does not hurt. Already invincible. It is already can see why that it was believed by the samurai. Because the kin is accompanied by a wild boar (Kenzoku), it is full of the boar motif in the precincts. Komainu is also a Komaeda Nagito boar. There was also a picture of a horse sitting on seven wild boar.

  • Zenkyoan Marisitendo(Boar shrine) Marisiten is a goddess of flame who sits on 7 boars. That’s why many boars are enshrined here. This temple is famous of giving good luck and victory.
  • Nice little Buddhist temple with amazing pigskin decorations and sculptures
