Daiho’on-ji Temple (大報恩寺(千本釈迦堂))

3.0

Temple

A Shingon Chisan Buddhist temple located in Kamigyo-ku, Kyoto City. The temple was founded in 1221 by the priest Giku and is also called Senbonshaka-do (the Thousand Buddha Temple). The main hall has escaped numerous wars and fires and looks as it did when it was first built. It is the oldest structure in Kyoto City and is designated a National Treasure. The grounds are home to Okame-zuka, the Tomb of Okame, master carpenter’s wife, and the temple attracts an unending stream of worshipers from around the nation due to its resulting association with aiding in finding marriage, marital happiness, and having children. In the Kamakura period (1185–1333), a monk cut Sanskrit characters into a daikon (radish) to pray for good health; today, the temple’s daikon-offering ceremony held in December is a key winter event in Kyoto.

Review of Daihoon-ji Temple Okamezuka

悲劇の舞台だが、転じて夫婦円満、縁結びのご利益があるという。夫は大報恩寺(千本釈迦堂)の本堂を建築した棟梁だったが、建築ミスで大ピンチに。そこへ妻であるおかめが妙案を出して危機を脱したが、おかめは妻の案で救われたとあっては棟梁の名誉にかかわると考え、竣工を前に自死した。境内の一角にモニュメントのような像が置かれており、女性が手を合わせる姿がみられた。

千本釈迦堂の境内に立つ大きな像でした。おかめ伝説に由来する像となっており、伝説自体は意味不明ではあるものの記念撮影スポットの一つともなっていました。

大報恩寺は千本釈迦堂とも呼ばれています。3月の終わりごろ大きな枝垂れ桜を見に訪れました。こちらに大きなおかめの像があり驚きました。朗らかな表情が印象的でした。おかめの冥福を祈って作られたそうです。

          Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
