Kojakuji Temple香積寺

Temple

Kojakuji Temple is a Soto sect temple on Mt. Iimori in Asuke Town, Toyota City, Aichi Prefecture. In order to hold a memorial service for the departed powerful Asuke clan, the temple was built among the remains of the Asuke clan residence in 1427. In the mountains there is a stone image of the sixteen arhats, and the tombs of the Asuke Castle Lords and five generations of the Asuke clan. The eleventh chief priest of the temple known as the father of momiji, planted maple and cedar trees in the area and now it is famous for its beautiful autumn leaves. Because it is located in the middle of the Korankei Gorge, many tourists come to visit in the fall.

もみじのトンネルを通り、階段を登った所にあります。香嵐渓の中でも香積寺のもみじは最高です。とても風情がある建物ともみじはあまりにも素晴らしいです。

香嵐渓のもみじは、江戸時代初期香積寺住職が楓を植えたのが始まりとされています。
その後住民の手によって植樹がすすみ現在では約4,000本にものぼるそうです。
香嵐渓の生みの親ですね。
三州足助屋敷から長くて急な階段を登って行くと山門が見えてきます。そこから振り返る見る景色はとても美しいですが、訪問時はもみじまつりで大混雑でした。
境内に入ると山門近くとは違い静かでした。

          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.
