Enno-ji Temple円応寺

Temple

Rinzai Kencho-ji Temple Buddhist temple located in Yamanouchi, Kamakura City. The temple enshrines figures of Enma, judge of the dead, and the ten rulers of the afterlife. Also known as the “Shinkyo Enma-do” and the “Juo-do” in reference to these statues, the temple’s principal object of worship, a wooden seated figure of Enma, is believed to have been created in the Kamakura period by the renowned Buddhist sculptor Unkei. This figure, sometimes called the “Laughing Enma” due to its facial expression, is also called the “Man-Eating Enma” because, according to legend, it once mistakenly ate a child. Two fragrant olive trees grow in front of the main temple, and in October they come into beautiful bloom.

Review of Enno-ji Temple

Reviewed:2018/10/22 閻魔大王と十王の像
運慶作とも伝わる迫力ある閻魔大王の像が見事。その周りに死後の人を裁くと言われる十王の像がある。立地が建長寺の前なので、こちらにも是非!
Reviewed:2018/06/09 閻魔王座像が有名です
建長寺の道を挟んだ向かい側にあります。急な階段を登ると、小さな山門があり、その奥に本堂があります。小さなお寺ですが、重要文化財の閻魔王座像が有名です。閻魔王以外にも、十王が安置されており、初七日、四十九日、三回忌など、各王の役割が記されています。拝観料は200円です。
Reviewed:2018/04/01 Tempio buddhista...
D fronte al tempio Kencho-ji c'è questo piccolo tempio buddhista che va visitato per le statue che raffigurano i giudici dell'inferno che decidono il destino delle anime. Interessante.

          Kanagawa prefecture acts as an extension of the Tokyo metropolis that spills over into coastal towns, most notably Yokohama city, heavily populated and known for its Chinatown and seaside attractions. Just the right distance for a day trip out of Tokyo, Kanagawa is home to some of Tokyo's most accessible beaches, including around Kamakura, best known for its Big Buddha. Visitors can also travel a little farther afield for a weekend at Hakone onsen town.
