Ankokuji Temple (安国寺)

4.0

Temple

This is one of the temples which Ashikaga Takauji and his brother Tadayoshi, the founders of the Muromachi Shogunate, ordered built across Japan. It was founded in 1347 by converting Shorinji Temple in Kokufu. It originally had a complete seven-structured temple compound and nine sub-temples, but most of it was destroyed during the Warring States period. The rotating sutra shelf in the scripture house which survived the fires is the oldest of its kind in Japan. It's one of the few sutra repositories to be declared a National Treasure, along with those at Horyuji Temple and Toshodaiji Temple. The Senshin no Mori forest behind the temple has numerous cultural assets, and you can do a walk taking in some of the 33 sacred spots of the Saigoku Pilgrimage.

高山市国府町にある、臨済宗妙心寺派の寺院である、大平山安国寺。
経堂が国宝に指定されていますが、予約してなかったために、参拝はできませんでした。

41号を走行中に見つけた‘国宝 安国寺経蔵‘の看板を頼りに立ち寄りました。事前情報が全くない中立ち寄ったので、国宝の経蔵を見るのに予約が必要だということを知らずに見ることはできませんでしたが、経蔵が収められている建物だけ見てきました。とても歴史を感じる古く趣のある建屋でした。日本最古の回転する経蔵、今度行くときは事前にしっかり予約をして説明を聞きながら見てみたいものです。

          Tucked away in the very center of Japan, Gifu prefecture houses mountains, old towns, and one of Japan’s greatest hot springs, Gero Onsen. A tour of the prefecture’s traditional architecture will take you from the mountain-enveloped wooden streets of Takayama to the mountain village of Shirakawago, where visitors can explore 250-year-old thatched roofed houses known as gassho-zukuri.
