  • This temple is located in the valley of Nakasenmoto of Mt. Yoshino, the most famous cherry blossom spot in Japan. It is the imperial temple of Emperor Daigo after the emperor of the sorrow luck of the south morning transmitted with the founding of The Yanki Year. It is a historical temple with Masanari Kusunoki and Masayuki parents and children of Tadaomi, and the appearance which floats on the cherry tree at the time of cherry blossoms is beautiful.

  •  It is emperor's imperial temple, and there is emperor's mausoleum in the precincts. It is said that Masayuki Kusunoki refrained from the decisive battle with Mr. Ashikaga, and carved the phrase of the resignation to the door of this temple at the time when it visited emperor's tomb. In the exhibition space of the pay zone, temple treasures related to historical facts are exhibited. It is a little far from The Kadomae town of Kinmineyama-ji Temple, and there is a distance considerably when walking. It stopped in the parking lot of shimosen, it stopped in the parking lot of shimosen, it returned to the parking lot, it got on the car, and it faced The Kiiringji temple though it went up to Yoshino yama by car on this day. The parking lot of The Kishinji Temple was large, and the road for sightseeing used for the return trip was wide, and it was convenient to the foot.

  • Here was a palace of Godaigo Emperor in 13th century, where is totally isolated from central of town. Walking shoes are necessary. You can discover the silence and beauty of natures.
  • This fascinating temple contains a small collection of artifacts that describe the lesser known story of Kusunoki Masatsura and his 143 retainers who sacrificed themselves in an unwinnable battle in defense of the Emperor Godaigo, who moved his capital to Mt. Yoshino after the split with the Ashikaga clan. Masatsuura was a true modern soldier far ahead of his time. Unlike the other storied Samurai of the time, he was a realist who saw war as the last resort, and only to be used for the Emperor and the state, not for personal gain or for the benefit of his clan. Yet when his clan did fight, it was known for its ability to overcome much larger forces and to perservear over long drawn out conflicts.
