Jofukuji Temple (椿堂 常福寺)

3.5

Temple

"A Shingon Buddhist temple located east along National Route 192 traveling from the Mishima-Kawanoe Interchange. Known as the Tsubakido (the ""Camelia Hall""), the temple is the 14th temple on the Shikoku 20 Bekkaku Temple Pilgrimage. According to legend, when the great monk Kobo Daishi was visiting the area, he heard a terrible fever was epidemic, and so he took his cane and sealed the evil spirits behind the illness in the ground. A camellia tree grew from the cane, thus giving rise to the temple's nickname, and even today visitors will find a huge camellia growing on the grounds. A statue of Kobo Daishi is located at the foot of the tree, and it is said that touching the statue with your right hand while touching a place on your body where you are experiencing pain with your left and praying will cause your pain to go away."

四国別格の二十霊場を参拝されています多くの方が、御朱印とお数珠玉をいただく方が多いと思いますが、その親玉をいただけますのは、現在、この椿堂さんです。お忘れないように気を付けてください。

真っ赤な門が、印象的
おさわり大師 で 治癒を祈願
Reviewed:2017/11/21 細い道を挟んで本堂と大師堂が向い合っています
四国別格二十霊場第十四番札所のお寺で寺名は常福寺と言いますが、椿堂の名の通り境内に椿の木が多く植えられていました。
細い道を挟んで本堂と大師堂が向い合っていて、本堂側は赤い鐘楼門と客殿、おさわり大師がありました。「おさわり大師」はセクハラっぽい名ですが、別名「身代わり大師」と言われていて、右手でお大師さまを、左手で自分の痛い所をさわりお願いすると痛みが治まる(お大師様に痛みが移る)そうです。

          Stretched across the northwest corner of Shikoku island, Ehime is a nature-rich prefecture boasting beautiful coastlines and a rural center where mountains play host to 26 of the Buddhist temples that make up the Shikoku Pilgrimage. Matsuyama is home to an original post-feudal castle as well as Dogo Onsen, one of the country’s oldest natural hot springs. The northern city of Imabari marks the entrance to the Shimano Kaido, a road that crosses six spectacular bridges and several islands, forming a route between Shikoku and mainland Honshu.
