Raigoin Temple (来迎院)

A Tendai Buddhist temple located a 15-minute walk from Ryugasaki Station on the Kanto Railway Ryugasaki Line. The temple's principal object of worship is a standing figure of Amitabha. The two-tiered pagoda standing on the grounds is an extremely rare example of Muromachi period architecture whose date of construction precedes 1556 and has been designated a National Important Cultural Property. The temple holds a grand fire prevention festival on December 23 which looks beyond differences in sect and creed. During the festival, the ashes of a huge bonfire are scattered on the ground and a fire walking ceremony is held in which anyone can participate with an advance reservation.

ネット検索で偶然知り、近くに居た為始めて訪れてみました。天台宗のお寺で境内に国指定重要文化財の多宝塔があります。室町後期の建築物で、この地方では殆ど類を見ない珍しい物だという事です。休日に訪れましたが誰も居なく静かでした。

龍ヶ崎に初めてきたので周りを散策してみました。徒歩圏内は寺社ばかりでしたが、思っていたよりも立派な建物で見応えありました。

なんといっても見どころは多宝塔。想像していたより小さめでしたが、見ごたえ十分でした。やはり風格が違う感じ。

          Just a stone's throw from Tokyo, Ibaraki is a coastal prefecture that has mastered juxtapositions, where old shrines meet new scientific discoveries and traditional gardens are frequented by the inventors of some of the newest technology. Head to Mito City's Kairakuen - one of Japan's Three Great Gardens - in spring to experience the cellestial blooming of fantastic cherry blossoms at the annual sakura festival.
