両足院の特別公開に合わせて建仁寺に来ました。少し時間が有ったので境内をブラブラとしていたら一番南西に有りました。元弘年間に創建なのでちょうど鎌倉幕府が終わる戦乱の時期のようです。まだ開いていませんが隣の摩利支天堂へいけるのでしょか、立て看板が有ります。門から眺める前庭は奇麗に整備されていました。 more »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.

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
