Seigantoji Temple Reviews
熊野三山の一つ、熊野那智大社のすぐ横に、青岸渡寺がありました。熊野那智大社の社殿は鮮やかな朱色が目に染みるほどだったのに対し、こちらのお寺は、渋くて落ちつきのある、どっしりとしたたたずまいが好印象です。 本殿（？）から少し降りたところに三重塔があります。この三重塔は、鮮やかな朱色と白い壁がまぶしいほどの美しさですが、角度によっては、三重塔の真横に流れ落ちる那智の滝が見える場所がありました。最高... more »There was Aogishi Toji Temple right next to Kumano Nachi Taisha Shrine, one of the three Kumano mountains. While the shrine of Kumano Nachi Taisha was so full of bright scarlet colors, this temple has a strong, astringent, calm atmosphere. The main hall(?) There is a three-story tower a little off from. This triple pagoda is so beautiful that the bright scarlet and white walls are dazzling, but depending on the angle, there was a place where you could see Nachi Falls flowing down right next to the triple tower. It is the best viewpoint.
大門坂駐車場に車を停めて大門坂→表参道→青岸渡寺の順に歩いて観光しました。 西国三十三ヶ所巡りの第一番札所です。 今回始めてなのでこちらで御朱印帳も購入しました(¥2,000) 海外からの方が多くてビックリです。それも皆さん御朱印帳をお持ちで 手水舎は那智の滝の水です more »I parked my car at Daimonzaka parking lot and walked to sightseeing in the order of Daimonzaka to Omotesando to Aogishi Toji Temple. It is the first place of the tour of the 33 places of the west country. Because it was the first time this time, I also purchased the seal book here (2,000 yen) I am surprised that there are many people from overseas. And everyone has a seal book, and Temizusha is the water of Nachi Falls.
The combination of three-story-pagoda and waterfall is excellent!
First of all, its name is really cool. The name of this temple reminds me an Indian missionary crossing all the way over the Blue Ocean.I feel something spiritual romance.
