Kannon-in (Shusse-Kannon) (観音院庭園)

 0857245641  Tottori Pref. Tottorishi Uemachi 162

This is a temple located in Tottori City’s Uemachi Town in Tottori Prefecture which used to be the temple for the Ikeda family, the feudal lords of the Tottori domain. It is also the 32nd temple of the Chugoku 33 Kannon Pilgrimage, a junrei pilgrimage route. The principal object of worship is an image of the Shokanzeon Bosatsu, or Kannon Bodhisattva, and it is believed to be a Shusse Kannon (the word ‘shusse’ in Japanese means ‘success in life’ or ‘moving ahead in your life/career”) since it reportedly became larger every time it was moved. Construction of the Kannon-in garden, which has been designated as a Special Place of Scenic Beauty, took ten years from 1650 to be completed, and is an example of Chisenkansho-shiki Teien style in which there is a large pond around which gentle slopes, stones and trees and bushes have been arranged. Visitors can partake of the matcha tea and sweets service to sit down and slowly appreciate the garden view.

Reviewed:2018/06/24 일본 다도체험
일본 다도체험을 할수 있다고 해서 일정에 포함시켰습니다.
고즈넉한 일본식 정원을 볼수 있으며
사람이 거의 없어서 혼자 사색에 잠기기 충분했습니다.
Reviewed:2018/05/22 大きな特徴は背景の傾斜地形
こちらは、鳥取藩主池田家の祈願所八ケ寺の一つ。裏に国の名勝にも指定されている庭園があって、こちらは有料。奥の書院から眺めます。
庭は、江戸中期の作。京都風蓬莱様式の池泉鑑賞式日本庭園で、大きな特徴は背景の傾斜地形。一般の築山と違って、なんの工夫もないようで一見物足りなく思ってしまうのですが、それが実は個性ある趣きとなっています。
Reviewed:2018/05/01 庭園のあるお寺
JR鳥取駅周辺を観光にて立ち寄りました。庭園のあるお寺のようですが、庭園を見るにはどうしてかわからず。また、
時間もなかったのでお寺のみ見て帰りました〇
Reviewed:2018/04/21 紅葉は最高
春はお寺さんに上がる前に桜が咲いていて綺麗です。入館料が要りますが中に入ると素晴らしい庭園ががあり庭師さんの手入れが行き届いています。池も大きくて立派ですが入館料が高いのが玉にキズです。
Reviewed:2017/12/24 추천 정원
비가 오는 날 돗토리역 안내소 직원의 추천으로 방문.
500엔 말차ㆍ과자와 함께 실내에서 보는 정원이 좋음.
슬리퍼 있어서 나가서 볼 수도 있음.
다른 정원에서는 시간 제한도 있고, 사진 촬영도 안되고 했는데,
방문객이 없어서 한 시간 정도 혼자만의 시간을 만끽.
