Temple

Shogetsuin Temple is a temple of the Soto school of Zen Buddhism and is situated on a hill about five minutes’ walk from Ito Station. The temple is also known as Hana-dera (flower temple) or Sakura-dera (cherry blossom temple) because of the many cherry trees planted there, including the rare higan (early-flowering) cherry tree. The temple is famous for its spectacular views overlooking Ito City and the sea. It is also the family temple and birthplace of Mokutaro Kinoshita, a literary man from Ito. In the beautifully maintained gardens are a slab with a haiku engraved onto it and a writing-brush burial mound, and in the lake next to the main temple is Bentendo Hall devoted to the goddess Saraswati. It is one of the stops on the tour of the Seven Deities of Good Fortune.

Reviewed:2019/11/10 駐車場も完備し境内からの海の景色も素敵です。
境内のベンチがある場所から海の景色が綺麗に見えます。伊東公園の頂上からより遥かに素敵です。お弁当を食べながら堪能できますよ。

JR伊東駅から栄えていない側にあります。伊東公園を抜けて行きました。本堂近くに大きな鬼瓦があり、建て替え前に使用していた物です。庭園もあり、良かったです〇
Reviewed:2018/03/24 お庭が綺麗です
場所は少し分かりにくいかもしれません
狭い道を通った坂の途中にありました
駐車場?はあるので車でも行けます
お庭には橋と桜がありとても綺麗でした
御朱印もあるみたいです

          With the giant Pacific Ocean to the south and the great Mount Fuji to the north, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with some of the best views the country has to offer. The white sand beaches of the Izu Peninsula are a rare find on mainland Japan, neighbored by beautiful cliffs, tumbling hills, and natural hot springs. As Japan’s largest producer of green tea, the age-old tradition of tea drinking is ubiquitous in Shizuoka, from the miles of tea fields to the old tea houses hosting traditional tea ceremonies.
