Chuson-ji Temple (中尊寺)

3.5

Temple

This temple was reportedly founded in 850 by Jikaku Daishi, a monk associated with Enryaku-ji Temple in Hieizan (Mt. Hiei). Fujiwara Kiyohira is said to have laid the substantial foundation of the temple. Sights on the premises include the Konjikido, which has been designated as a National Treasure, and the Sankozo, which houses a collection of more than 3,000 cultural properties left by the Oshu Fujiwara lords. In 2011 the cultural heritage of Hiraizumi including Chuson-ji Temple was registered as a World Heritage Site.

本尊の弁財天十五童子(べんざいてんじゅうごどうじ)は仙台藩主伊達綱村公(だてつなむらこう)の正室仙姫(せんひめ)によって1705年に寄進されたもので、堂は1716年に建立されました。
また堂内には千手観音菩薩二十八部衆(せんじゅかんのんにじゅうはちぶしゅう)も安置されています。

旧・奥州街道をランニングで旅した際に立ち寄りました。桜の季節でしたが、桜の木々に囲まれた茅葺屋根のお堂がとても風情がありました。

          A northern Tohoku prefecture promising peace and quiet, Iwate is sparsely populated, replacing people with snow-capped mountains, history-rich sites, and fields of crops that are to thank for the region's delicious local cuisine. Meander along the three-city Golden Route, where you'll visit the grand Buddhist temples of Hiraizumi and the Tono folk villages before tasting the three famed noodle dishes of Morioka.
