Benzaiten Choken-ji Temple (辨財天長建寺)

"A Buddhist temple located a three-minute walk from the ""Chushojima"" municipal bus station. Known as the ""Shima no Benten-san,"" the temple was established in 1699 by Takebe Masanoki. The main temple building enshrines a statue of Benzaiten, the temple is believed to grant worshippers aid in improving various performing arts abilities. The temple grounds are a renowned destination for cherry blossom viewing and in late March a variety of weeping cherries called the ""ito-zakura"" comes into bloom, making these the earliest flowering weeping cherries in Kyoto. The temple is also famous for its coin sized, shellfish-shaped amulets which are said to bring good luck."

Review of Benzaiten Chokeiji Temple

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2016/08/25 Akasui springs
Chokenji Temple is located near Teradaya and Okura Kinenkan. It is maybe one of the main attractions in Fushimi areas. There is a spring called Akasui on premises.

伏見城の外堀にあたる濠川沿いにある島の弁天さんと親しまれる真言宗醍醐派の寺院です。

入口の素敵な中国風の竜宮門は通るだけで福が来るとのこと。ジュディ・オングさんがお参りなっていたようです。
広くなない境内ですが珍しい和歌みくじや小さな庭などがあり、木々に覆われた静かな雰囲気が素敵でした。
春になると糸桜という京都で一番早咲きの桜がみれるそうです。
Reviewed:2020/02/15 最悪な住職
「俺が誰だと思ってるんだ!門川に言いつけてやる。信仰心のないお前たち、出直してこい!」。本堂に入って祈れるか聞いた後の、住職からの反応でした。これまで見たことないほど酷く傷つくコメント。福徳という名前からは想像できないほど、福も徳の影が微塵も感じられない住職でした。

          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.
