Entsuin Temple円通院

Temple

Belonging to the Rinzai school of Zen Buddhism headed by Myoushin-ji Temple, Entsuin Temple is the first temple on the Sanriku 33 Kannon pilgrimage. The Sankeiden mausoleum was built on the top of a hill in 1646. The premises feature a rock garden with a heart-shaped pond, and in the autumn the colorful leaves on the trees make for a splendid sight. At night the garden is illuminated and the grounds are enveloped in a very mysterious atmosphere. It is also known as the rose temple for the splendid sight of beautiful roses blooming in its Western-style rose garden (Byakaho Seiyo-no-Niwa). In recent years the number of roses has dwindled, and it has come to be loved as the moss temple for the moss growing around the grounds.

          Lying along the northeastern coast of Japan, Miyagi prefecture is home to lashings of natural parks, oysters, and hot springs. While the bustling city of Sendai offers some simple city entertainment, it’s the Matsushima islands that deserve the most attention, having boosted the prefecture’s reputation as one of Japan’s most scenic views.
