Chuzen Temple Reviews
長野県上田市前山にある真言宗智山派の寺院。手前には塩野神社があり、神社から歩いてすぐの場所に中禅寺があります。 背後に信州百名山の独鈷山を見ながら中禅寺に向かって行きました。 仏敵を倒すための独鈷という武器に山の形が似ているのでその名が付けられた独鈷山はそれ程高くないのに近寄りがたい、危険で神々しい山でした。 中禅寺の創建者である空海上人がこの独鈷山を見てここか高野山に総本山を作ろうと考えたと伝... more »This temple is located in Maeyama, Ueda City, Nagano Prefecture. There is Shiono Shrine in the foreground, and Chuzenji Temple is just a short walk from the shrine. In the background, we went to Chuzenji Temple while looking at Mt. Dokki of Shinshu Hyakumeiyama. Because the shape of the mountain is similar to the weapon called The German to defeat the French enemy, it was a dangerous and awe-inspiring mountain that was hard to approach though the doky mountain named was not so high. It is said that the sky and sea man who was the founder of Chuzenji temple saw this Dokkiyama and thought about making a total main mountain here or in Koyasan.
「信州の鎌倉シャトルバス」の本数が少ないため、前山寺から約15分ほど歩いて訪問。大変貴重な薬師堂や金剛力士像を目の前で見られるので来る価値はあると思います。 more »Because the number of "Kamakura shuttle bus of Shinshu" is small, i visited it on a walk about 15 minutes from Maeyamaji Temple. I think that it is worth coming because you can see a very valuable Yakushido and a statue of Kongo Rikishi in front of you.
