Enoshima Daishi Temple江の島大師


A Shingon Buddhist temple located on the island of Enoshima. Enoshima Daishi Temple was founded in 1993 on the site of the previously demolished Enoshima-kan inn as the Kanto branch temple of the Saifuku-ji Temple in Kagoshima Prefecture. The temple’s principal object of worship is a figure of Acala. Located in the main temple building, the solemn red statue stands six meters tall, making it one of the largest indoor depictions of Acala in Japan. Goma ceremonies, in which cedar wood is burned before the figure of Acala, are held periodically, and visitors can come to consult with priests and receive Goma ashes and purifying salts.

I’ve visited Enoshima a lot.
But, skipped this temple every time, even though this is along the main path.
Finally today I stopped by.

Priest was reciting Sutra.
Maybe that’s why this place was...

I have been twice, Serene, quiet place.
You can pray, meditate for a shortwhile.

          Kanagawa Main Areas


          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.
