Honpukuji Temple, Mizumido本福寺水御堂

Temple

This temple is located about five minutes by car from Kobe-Awaji-Naruto Expressway's Higashiura Interchange. Belonging to the Omuro school of Shingon sect of Buddhism, the temple is the 59th stop on the Awaji Shikoku Pilgrimage. Its famous reinforced concrete main hall, Mizumido, was designed by Tadao Ando. Looking out over Osaka Bay, built into the hillside, it has a concrete ensconced lotus pond as its roof. The pond features floating water lilies and oga hasu, an ancient variety cultivated about 2,000 years ago.

          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.
