    Fukushima Pref. Fukushimashi Izakamachinakano Sekizaka 28
    One of Japan’s Three Great Fudosons, Nakano Fudoson is located on the west side of Iizaka Onsen-district. It is a power spot known as the birthplace of “Roku-San Yoke”—a secret method of charm protection. Three Fudo Myo-o “Yakuyoke”, “Ganshu”, and “Mikazuki” are worshipped here, and are said to hear the prayers of one who prays with a clean heart. You can enjoy some herbal tea called “Toki-cha” at the Kamoshika-An, a rest spot. They also offer original souvenirs of Nakano Fudoson and light meals such as dumpling balls with sweet sake.

    Nakanofudosan is a beautiful shrine up in the mountains near Iizaka. In the backdrop, there is an amazing waterfall. A stream runs through the shrine complex, with a path of multiple bridges. There...

    Fukushima Pref. Iwakishi Uchigoushiramizumachi Hirohata 219
    Shiramizu Amidado Temple was constructed in 1160, in the latter years of the Heian period, by Princess Tokuhime, the daughter of Fujiwara no Kiyohira. It is the only building in Fukushima Prefecture to have designated as a National Treasure. The way the Temple garden is designed, with ponds on the eastern, western and southern sides, is characteristic of the late Heian period Jodo (Pure Land) style of garden design. To reach the Amidado hall, visitors cross over a red bridge positioned directly in front of the hall. The architectural design of the Shiramizu Amidado Temple is said to have been influenced by temple architecture in Hiraizumi, the region where Princess Tokuhime was born.

    We have travelled Japan extensively and one of the most beautiful is a term I seldom use. It is also hard to express what makes this temple so worthwhile as the building is nothing out of the...

    Fukushima Pref. Kawanumagunaidubangemachi Toudera Matsubara 2944
    A Shingon Buddhist temple located in Aizubange Town, Kawanuma County Fukushima Prefecture. The temple's principal object of worship is an 11 faced, thousand hand statue of Kannon nicknamed the Tachiki Kannon. It is believed that the hermitage was constructed by the Liang Chinese monk Seigan in 540. Inside the Kannon-do hall, there is a pillar that is said to grant your wish if you embrace it, and many people come here to do just that.

    会津には、観音をまつる寺院が数多くあるが、ここがいちばん有名。 実際に根を持つ樹木に彫刻を加えて、観音像にしたことで、立木観音と呼ばれる。説明では、現在も生きた根を持っているという説明書きだが、少し疑わしい。 観音の両翼に二十八神将像が並んでおり、これも見もの。

    Getting there We took a long train ride there just to realize it’s under renovation.. hence I am only able to give 3 stars. If you still decide to go, you may take train to Aizu-Yanaizu Station...

    会津ころり三観音のひとつで中田観音様を拝むことが出来ます。が、観音様を見る為には予約(平日のみ?)が必要で今回は見る事が出来ず残念でした。次回は予約してから行きたいと思います。参拝は自由に出来ました。お堂の右側にはだきつき柱もあるので願い事をしてくるのが良いと思います。

    平安時代初期の807年に伝教大師の論敵として有名な法相宗の硯学徳一上人によって開かれた寺院です。訪問した日はちょうど薬師如来の祭礼、念仏踊り供養祭でした。参道には屋台が出て、賑わっていました。周辺道路は、交通整理が行われており、臨時の駐車場に案内されました。既に薬師堂の前では祭礼の衣装に身を包んだ人達を中心に祭礼の準備が行われていました。伊達正宗の会津攻撃で唯一戦火を免れた薬師堂は総檜造りで屋根が...

    飯坂温泉郷から車で5分程度離れた所にありました。お寺は平安時代に開基されたものらしく弘法大師を祀ってました。 奥の院薬師堂には、薬師如来を祀り「鯖野の薬師様」と呼ばれて古くから、多くの人の信仰を集めているそうです。
