    Hyougo Pref. Takaradukashi Nakayamadera 2-11-1
    This Buddhist temple is in Nakayamadera Temple, Takarazuka City. Built by Shotoku Taishi, it's regarded as Japan's first sanctuary dedicated to the Bodhisattva Kannon, a goddess of mercy. It's the 24th temple of 33 on the Saigoku Kannon Pilgrimage. The principal object of worship is an image of an 11-headed Kanzeon Bodhisattva that is thought to aid women in particular. As worshiping there fulfilled Toyotomi Hideyoshi's prayers for a child, the temple attracts people seeking fertility and safe childbirth.

    It is strange I live here in Takarazuka city long line but I never came here to see Nakayamadera. I am happy to have this experience too. Beautiful place I am sure to return here I think during New...

    Hyougo Pref. Takaradukashi Maitani Kiyoshi 1
    "This Buddhist temple in Maitani Kiyoshi, Takarazuka City was founded in 896. It was bestowed with the title of ""Japan's First Kiyoshikojin"" by Emperor Uda. Mixing Buddhist and native Shinto elements, it's primary god Kojin is known as a deity of fire, the hearth, and the kitchen. People in their unlucky years keep hibashi fire tongs thought to be blessed by Kojin as talismans during the period, and later dedicate them to the deity at the temple's Hibashi-Nojo Hall. The precincts also feature the Tessai Museum, which displays the work of the calligrapher Tessai Tomioka."

    We enjoyed the walk to the temple from the station. It is lined with interesting shops and restaurants. We visited in Winter so the trees were without leaves and it was quite cold. The turtle pond...

    A Buddhist temple located a 30-minute drive from the Kobe-Sanda interchange on the Chugoku Expressway.

The temple also displays some ten-odd stone Buddhist statues made in Gandhara, a source of such statuary which existed in India in the second to the third centuries, and these figures have served as valuable resources for research into art from the state.

    何度が参拝しておりますが, 今回は甲山森林公園からのハイキング道で訪問しました。森林公園のバス停から道を横断すると, 「神呪寺への自然散策路」という大きな看板がでていますので, 森林の中を散策すると神呪寺の仁王門にほどなく着きます。仁王門としてはきわめて珍しい建物だという説明が掲示されていました。なかなか趣きのある門でした。仁王門をくぐると, 交通量の多い道路があって...

    Hyougo Pref. Tambashi Ichijimachoubyakugouji 709
    This temple is located about 10 minutes by car from the Maizuru Expressway's Kasuga Interchange. Founded by the monk Hodo in 705, the principal object of worship is a hidden hibutsu image brought from India of Yakushi Ruriko Nyorai. The temple was destroyed by fire during Akechi Mitsuhide's attack on Tamba but was rebuilt in the late 1500s. Along with cherries and azaleas, the temple features a wisteria variety known as kyushaku-fuji with clusters reaching as long as 180 centimeters. They spread along a 120-meter wisteria trellis that's a sight to behold when in full bloom. The Kyushaku-fuji Festival is held to coincide with the flowering of the wisteria and sees a flood of tourists come to the temple every year.

    なんと境内に孔雀がいます。そして、鳥だけではありません。なんと、鯉もいます!私のように鳥と魚、両方好きだという方にはかなりおすすめできるスポットです。黒い大きな鯉はこんこんと新鮮な水の流れる広々とした池でのびのびと泳ぎ、裏手には白い小さな鯉がたくさん飼われていました。

    Hyougo Pref. Tambashi Aogakichouhinokura 514
    "This Buddhist temple is about a ten-minute drive from the Kita Kinki Toyooka Expressway's Aogaki Interchange. Founded by the Zen priest Enkei Soyu in 1325 during the Kamakura period, it was given the name Kogenji by Emperor Godaigo in 1326. It's the head temple of the Rinzai school of Zen's Chuho lineage. It was called ""Nishi Tenmoku,"" as opposed to the Kai District's Seiunji Temple which was called ""Higashi Tenmoku,"" making it Tamba's most prominent temple. It's also known as the Tenmoku Kaede Temple after its Tenmoku kaede maples that are characterized by smaller leaves and drooping branches. Many visitors come in the fall to see the turning of the leaves. At the start of the mountain climbing season, they hold Koto zither performances and hand out free amazake sweet half-sake."

    紅葉の名所 関西花の寺巡りで紅葉狩りに伺いました。 11月初旬が、見頃みたい。 11月23日に伺ったら、ほぼ終わってました。 焼きクリ、野菜と地元のものを結構、販売してます。 玉石混交で、お高いものもあるので注意です。

    Hijia Town, Hyogo Prefecture Tamba City 259
    "This temple is located about 15 minutes by car from the JR Fukuchiyama Line's Kaibara Station. Jyukusan Tashinji Temple was named after Jyukusan Tarumi-do hall which was transferred to this site as the main hall (""Tashin"" and ""Tarumi"" share the same Chinese characters). Founded by the priest Gyogi, it houses about 80 Buddhist images including Amida Buddha and Bishamonten. Among these are 12 National Important Cultural Properties and 34 Hyogo Prefecture designated Cultural Properties. There are so many valuable images it's been dubbed the ""Shosoin of Tamba."" There is a large dogtooth violet planting about a ten-minute walk away that's at its peak in early April."

    西国薬師巡りで初めて行きましたが、寒かったです。拝観料を払うと中を案内してくださいました。かつては国宝に指定された12体の仏像やたくさんの仏像がありました。記録が残っていませんが、仏師の集団がいたのではないかといわれています。下腹部がふくれた独特の形状も理由はなぞです。なんとも不思議な寺でした

    10月の連休後で人は少なく、丹波市内観光で通過地点にあったために立ち寄りました。山南町では大きな宗教施設が目をひきますが、ここは閑静な集落にあり、まずかやぶきの屋根が見事でした。明智光秀にかかわる立て看板もあり、門から見る対称的なお寺が簡素でした。紅葉の頃はもっと素敵でしょう。

Hyogo Areas

Hyogo prefecture stretches from the north coast to the south coast on the western end of the popular Kansai region, encompassing verdant mountains, urban beaches, and fantastic historical sights. The prefecture’s main attractions lie along the south coast at Kobe, the prefectural capital, a pretty harbor city best known for its production of the renowned Kobe beef, and Himeji, the home of Himeji Castle, one of the country’s most beautifully preserved feudal castles, perched magically atop a hill.
