Churenji Temple湯殿山注連寺

4.0

Temple

This temple, just a 15-minute drive from the Shonai Asahi Interchange, is famous for being the setting for the literary work, Gassan, by Atsushi Mori who won the Akutagawa Prize. Said to be established as a place of prayer after Kobodaishi founded Mt. Yudono. It is a historic temple, which enshrines an image of Saint Tetsumonkai. The Shimekake cherry tree can be seen in blossom from early May, and is said to have been where Kobodaishi sat and burn goma sticks. This temple has been awarded two stars in the Michelin Green Guide for Japan.

湯殿山注蓮寺は、作家の森淳の文庫が有ります。ここ注蓮寺は即身仏が有って、お参りをすることが出来ます。この地は、豪雪地帯で建物の屋根まで雪が積もると言うことです。

          Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
