Located in Kanemaki, Hidakagawa Town, this Buddhist temple was founded in 701 and is the oldest in Wakayama. The temple’s principal object of worship, a thousand-armed figure of Kannon, is over 1,300 years old and one of the oldest in Japan. This and two other designated National Treasures are housed in the temple’s treasure hall, as well as 11 Important Cultural Properties, and four prefecturally-designated Cultural Properties, all of which are viewable by visitors year-round.

Review of Dojo-ji Temple Hondo

Reviewed:2019/06/25 本堂と桜
道成寺の本堂は、南北朝時代に建て替えられた二代目のお堂です。
国の重要文化財に指定されています。
堂内には秘仏の千手観音像(重文)が祀られていて、三十三年に一度、春三十三日間だけ御開帳が行われます。
堂々とした佇まいで、桜に彩られて綺麗でした。
Reviewed:2019/03/30 千手観音像が素晴らしい道成寺本堂
ちょうど訪れた日、春の本堂無料公開の期間で、ラッキーでした。靴を脱いで本堂に上がり、ロの字型の廊下をぐるりと巡ることができました。本堂正面の千手観音像が素晴らしかったです。
Reviewed:2018/11/24 14世紀建築の重要文化財。
本堂は1378年の建物だそうで、重要文化財になっています。木造の建物で14世紀のものというのはすごく貴重ですね。ちょうど桜が咲いていて、本堂と桜の写真を撮ることができてよかったです。

          Wakayama prefecture unites pilgrims, food lovers, and culture buffs in a tranquil corner of Japan at the base of the Kii Peninsula. The setting for many a Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail, Wakayama invites those in search of spirituality from one side of the prefecture to the other, from the 100-plus Buddhist temples of the sacred Mount Koya in the west to the inspiring temples of the Kumano Sanzan set among breathtaking nature in the east. Once the grueling hike is complete, make a beeline for Wakayama city to savor some of the country’s most delicious ramen noodles.
