Shuzenji Temple

Temple
Shuzenji Temple is located in Izu City, Shizuoka Prefecture and in 2007 the temple welcomed the anniversary of its 1200-year history. The temple which was initially opened by Kobo Daishi, has now been converted to the Soto school of Buddhism. The Izu peninsula pilgrimage to the 88 sacred places (holy spots related to Kobo Daishi) ends at this temple which also issues amulets. Hot spring water gushes forth and steam rises up from the purificatory font on the grounds of the temple where the charm of this hot spring district lingers. Special events are held to match each season such as open-air concerts during the summer and in autumn, the courtyard tinged with autumn colors is opened to the public. The original “Shuzen-ji Temple meal” is shojin ryori (devotion cuisine) which is originally derived from Buddhism and has adopted the ideas of Chinese herbal medicine. It can be savoured at the tasting event which has been held every year since 2000.

    Shuzenji is half an hour South of Mishima, but it is worth the detour. The landscape is lovely, the small town/village charming. A real highlight is the temple - it is beautifully situated in its own...
