Eikokuji Temple (Ghost Temple)永国寺(ゆうれい寺)

Temple

"This historic Soto sect Zen Buddhist temple is the ninth stop on the Higo pilgrimage to 33 sites sacred to the bodhisattva Kannon. Also known as the Ghost Temple, it has a hanging scroll depicting a ghost from a temple legend that has been passed down since ancient times. The pond behind the main hall is where the ghost was said to have appeared. They have a popular Ghost Festival every August, where for one night only they open a ""Ghost House"" and various festival stands set up shop."

Review of Eikokuji

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2015/10/19 Ghost Shrine
Eikokuji was on one of the main road, cemetery was on both side to the path leading to the temple.
Atmosphere was not good. Better not to go in as there were much more attractive shrines to visit in...

オバケ屋敷も怖いです。

熊本にある曹洞寺の寺院であります。こちらのお寺に伝わる幽霊の掛け軸から、幽霊寺の異名を持つお寺です。

          Kumamoto lies in the center of Kyushu, a calm prefecture perfect for easy strolls around the historic center and lazy evenings in the natural hot springs at Kurokawa Onsen. For a slightly more strenuous activity, head to Mount Aso, whose surrounding hills offer hiking opportunities aplenty with views over the active volcano.
