Kousanji Museum (Kousanji Temple)耕三寺博物館(耕三寺)

4.0

Temple

The temple of Jodo Shinshu in Setoda Town, Onomichi City. It was established in 1936 by Kouzo Kousanji, an industrialist, to ensure his mother’s bodai or enlightment. The temple itself is the museum and inside the exhibition hall there are displays of cultural properties such as artifacts of Buddhism, tea ceremony and drawings. Many temples were built mimicking Japanese architecture and 15 buildings, including the main hall, are registered as Tangible Cultural Properties of the country. It is also called “the Sunlight in the West”.

Review of Kosanji Temple

Reviewed:2019/04/23 Worth a look.
Interesting temple along the Shimanami Kaido. The 1000 Buddha cave worth a look. Entry is a little more expensive than other temples.

There, a series of islands spreads across the Seto Inland Sea: from the mysterious sea-submerged Great Torii Gate at Miyajima Island to the first half of the islands that connect Honshu to Shikoku via six spectacular suspension bridges.
