Eisho-ji Temple Reviews
永昌寺は、稲荷町駅の近くにある浄土宗の寺院です。7月の早朝に参拝しました。形の良い本堂の寺院です。この寺院は、1558年下谷御成小路辺長者町に創建され、1637年に現在の場所に移転されたとのことです。この場所は、講道館柔道発祥の地とのことです。講道館柔道の祖である嘉納治五郎がこの寺内に建てた１２畳の道場が発祥とのことです。神社仏閣、柔道に興味がある方にお勧めのスポットです。 more »Eishoji Temple is a temple of the Jodo Sect located near Inaricho Station. I visited the shrine in the early morning of July. It is a temple of the main temple with good shape. The temple was founded in 1558 in Shimoya Onekoji-ji-ji-cho and relocated to its current location in 1637. This place is the birthplace of Kodokan Judo. It is said that the 12-tatami dojo built in this temple originated from Jigoro Kano, the founder of Kodokan Judo. It is a recommended spot for those who are interested in shrines, temples and judo.
清州橋通り側が正門のようですが、稲荷町駅３番出口のすぐ横の細い参道を進むと味わいある山門があります。 1558年に尊譽榮全が創建した浄土宗のお寺で、ビルに挟まれた中にありますが、境内は庭も白砂もきれいに清掃されていました。 境内に講道館を建てたことから、ここが柔道発祥の地だそうです。 more »The Seishubashi Street side seems to be the main gate, but if you follow the narrow approach right next to Exit 3 of Inari-cho Station, there is a delicious mountain gate. This temple was founded in 1558 by The Jodo Sect, which was built by The Son-do-ho, and is sandwiched between buildings, but the grounds were cleaned with a garden and white sand. It is said that this is the birthplace of Judo because it built the Kodokan in the precincts.
