Temple

A Pure Land sect Buddhist temple built by Nichizo in the Engi period between 901 and 923. Designated an imperial temple by Emperor Go-Daigo during the Nanboku-cho period (1336-1392), Kusunoki Masashige’s eldest son Masatsura, anticipating his end in the Battle of Shijonawate, carved his death poem the doors of the main nave before departing for the front. In spring, the figure of the bodhisattva Cintamanicakra, housed in the main nave, is unveiled.

桜の季節に行ったので、みなさん紙コップに入った桜のアイスを食べてました。あとは、夕方だったこともあり、閑散とした印象でした。
Reviewed:2017/04/12 見晴らしは、奥のほうの店
このお寺は、拝観料を払わず利用できる茶屋、払って入山して初めて利用できる場所と二箇所あります。奥のほうは、谷向かい方向の眺望が素晴らしいです。メニューは抹茶と葛きりだけでしたが、満足しました。

如意輪寺の境内のなか、宝物殿の奥のほうにあります。お抹茶をいただきました。一緒に出てきたお菓子は菊の紋になっていて、後醍醐天皇との縁が深いところならではでした。席からの眺めもまた素晴らしく、春は桜がきれいなのだそうです。

          With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of “traditional Japan.” The largely green Nara city holds the majority of the prefecture's treasures, such as the iconic Todai-ji Temple, in which a 15-meter tall Great Buddha sits, and Nara Park, where deer flock to befriend passersby. While mountains are by no means hard to come by in this area, for hiking with a reward, head to the Kii Mountains' Yoshino district in spring, when the hillsides put on an impressive display of white and pink cherry blossoms.
