Inuyama Jakko-in Temple犬山 寂光院

Temple

Jakkoin Temple in Inuyama City, Aichi Prefecture, is a temple of the Chisan School of the Shingon Sect. The temple is also known by the names Tsugaokannon, and Momijidera. It is said that the Japanese Buddhist priest, Dosho, built the temple by order of Emperor Kotoku in 654. The temple received a donation from Oda Nobunaga as a holy temple of the Kimon guardian of Kiyosu Castle in 1565. The place is famous for its beautiful flowers all year round such as the spring Yoshino cherry, hydrangeas and crape-myrtle. The colorful leaves of about 1,000 trees can be seen in autumn, and many tourists come to the Momiji Festival held from the second Saturday of November to the second Sunday of December.

とても素晴らしい紅葉!寂光院口まではコミュニティバスなどで行ける。それより上、タクシーと日にち指定でバスもあるよう。本堂までは階段が長く続く。有料のケーブルカー6人乗りがありました。
Reviewed:2018/11/26 山のモミジが足で楽しめます。
犬山駅東口よりコミュニティバス(200円/日)に乗り10分程度で寂光院口に着き、そこからモミジを見ながら石段を登って行きます。
紅葉の時期でもあり、平日ですが結構人はいました。庭園はありませんが、登る途中や本堂の色付きを楽しむことになります。
京都のような華やかさはありませんが、無料であり山のモミジを楽しめます。
Reviewed:2018/10/03 紅葉が今から楽しみです
昨年11月の紅葉のハイシーズンに訪問しました。道中の山道は結構大変でしたが、苦労した分美しい紅葉寺を散策できました。今年も訪問しようと思います。

          Aichi is a prefecture of great natural beauty with Nagoya city at its heart, a busy hub home to a labyrinth of underground shops and the 17th-century Nagoya Castle. Castles are easy to find in this history-rich prefecture, but the highlight for history buffs has to be the Museum Meiji-mura, where preserved buildings from the turn of the 20th century are displayed in all their grandeur in an outdoor museum.
