    Kyoto Miyadushi Nariaiji 339
    This is number 28 of the 33 Saigoku pilgrimage (33 temples in the Kinki area containing a statue of Kannon) temples. The principal object of worship is the beautiful Kannon (Avalokiteshvara), and it said that if one visits the temple both mind and body will become beautiful.

    天橋立観光船、ケーブルカー、登山バスを乗り継いで西国28番札所の成相寺に参拝しました。本堂右手に十王堂があります。朱塗りの小さいながらも美しいお堂です。閻魔大王が安置されており堂前から拝観できました。迫力ある形相が印象に残ります。堂内の左には美しい孔雀明王像が祀られていたのを後で知りました。見逃したこと本当に残念です。お堂のそばの桜が満開で見事でした。

    駅からはバスがなくて歩いて40分 車は駐車場が¥500です。 幹線道路を横にそれて、かなり細い山道を車を走らせて登って行くとひっそりと建っています。 本堂にはお寺の方が居られて詳しく説明して下さいました。 御朱印は本堂の下 仁王門の横にあります。

    雨まじりの陰鬱な日に拝観、山門をぐぐって無人の入山料支払いコーナーで入山料を払って参拝の道を進みます。 参道はモミジのトンネル、紅葉の時期の赤く染まったモミジと三重塔の写真は印象的です。 長い石段の上に本堂、御本尊は波切不動尊で剣で海を切る姿をしています。 予約をしていませんでしたが宝物殿の拝観ができました。ご住職に心願成就の法要をしていいただき、かつての本尊だった阿弥陀如来座像や、快慶作の執金...

    Kyoto Maizuru-shi Hikitsuchi 72

    西舞鶴の静寂な街並みの中に佇む、厳かな寺院でした。 トイレを借りようと声をかけたら、法要の人と間違えられ『どうぞお上がりください』と言われ、間違いだとわかると『そこの公衆トイレを使って』と言われ、何とも感じの悪い応対をされました。

Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
