Review of Taihei-ji Temple

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2018/06/28 正式名は神護山太平寺といいます
臨済宗妙心寺派寺院で創建後、約660年ほどが経過している中堅寺院です。古寺とは云えませんが特段新しい訳でもありません。本尊は地蔵菩薩で、海峯性公尼が四国霊場を巡拝していた泉巌覚雲の助力によって開いた寺院。この二人の座像が室町時代の肖像彫刻としては代表的なものとされ、国の重文にも指定されています。明治の悪法の廃仏毀釈とか云う珍稀な法令で廃寺にされたが、こんな幼稚な無能政府などの気まぐれで由緒ある寺院...

          The largest of Shikoku's prefectures, Kochi is endowed with some of the island's most exceptional sand beaches lining the Pacific Ocean, which narrows into the Shimanto-gawa, a huge river that stretches 196 kilometers into the prefecture, passing verdant mountains and hosting countless riverside activities. Whether you're a pilgrim or not, Kochi's 16 Buddhist temples that make up one leg of the Shikoku Pilgrimage are worth a visit, particularly Chikurin-ji for its five-tier pagoda.
