    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.

    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...

    こちらの見所は巨大な千手観音様です。幕の中でお姿を見ることになりますが、見上げても顔がはっきり見えないくらい大きい像です。また、文化財指定されている彫刻にしては珍しく手で触ることができます(足だけですが)。
