Daitsuji Temple Reviews
長浜駅から、北国街道、黒壁スクェア、アーケード街を見て、最後にたどり着くのがこの大通寺になると思います（更に西へ５分も歩けば八幡宮がありますが、訪問客は少ないようです）。 丸山応挙や狩野派の障壁画、伏見桃山城や長浜城から移設された文化財などが保存されている、桃山文化が身近に感じられる寺院です。 こちらには複数回訪れていますが、立派な山門をくぐり境内に入っても、名刹と呼ばれる寺院に入ると感じる落ち着... more »From Nagahama Station, i think it will be this Odoriji that will end with the Kitakoku Kaido, Kurobe Square, and arcade streets (if you walk five minutes to the west, there are hachimangu shrines, but there are few visitors). This temple is a temple where you can feel the momoyama culture, where the barrier paintings of Maruyama and Kano schools, as well as cultural properties relocated from Fushimi Momoyama Castle and Nagahama Castle, are preserved. I have visited this place several times, but even if I pass through the splendid mountain gate and enter the precincts, I feel that I cannot convey the calmness and solemnity that I feel when I enter a temple called a temple.

親鸞750回遠忌ということらしく、客殿にガラス細工などを展示しています。襖絵、庭など見るべきものが多く、楽しめました。本堂の障子には地元の切り絵作家・早川鉄平氏の手になる切り絵が施されており、特に内側から見ると見事なものでした。 more »It seems to be a 750th anniversary of Shinran, and glasswork etc. are exhibited in the guest hall. There were a lot of things to see such as the painting and the garden, and i enjoyed it. The shoji in the main hall was decorated with cut-outs in the hands of local cut-out artist Tetsuhei Hayakawa, and it was particularly impressive from the inside.
A temple with an amazing entrance. Besides that there isn't really much else for tourists.
One of the many Historical landmark in Nagahama City. Should come visit this place when you're touring in Shiga Prefecture.
