Koen-ji Temple Reviews
東本願寺の別院があるので、この付近には真宗大谷派の寺院が数多くあり、このお寺も東本願寺派のお寺です。建物は２階建てのコンクリート造りで、いわゆるお寺らしい外観ではありませんが、戦災で焼失したお寺を再建するときにはこのようにコンクリート造りにしたところも多いようで、時代を感じますね more »In the nearby temple of the Jodo Shinshu Otani-HA there of Higashi honganji Temple, so, this temple is a temple of the Higashi hongan-JI sect. Like many when rebuilding the temple was burnt down by the war in the two-story concrete building, is not called the temple look like this with concrete, I feel the time.
浅草には大きな伽藍をもつお寺があると同時に、都会のまんなかで何もないお寺も多数あります、このお寺はコンクリートの寺院で、建物はかなり大きく感じました、しかし、庭が全くなく、残念ながら見るものがほとんどない印象でした。 more »And with the big temple at Asakusa Temple, in the heart of the city at the same time there are no temples, this temple is in the Temple of the concrete building was is seen but no garden but alas was quite large, almost no impression.
It is a quiet and calm temple, but there will be no ban on photography in the precincts. It is not only a place for samurai, and the temple is closed in the first place, and it only declines.
Originally, it is said that it was named Kozawa village, but it is said that the third Shogun Iemitsu rested at this temple during the samurai hunting, and it is said that he had set up a palace because he liked it very much. After that, it became Koenji village from the name of this temple, and it seems to have reached now. If not, it is impossible for the name of the temple to become a place name.
