Review of Muryoji - Rosetsuji Kushimoto Okyo Rosetsu Hall

Reviewed:2019/10/28 龍虎の襖絵、本物は圧巻!
本堂や収蔵庫は案内してもらわないと入れないので、他のお客さんとバッティングすると待たないといけません。本堂の襖絵のレプリカは撮影可能です。収蔵庫は平成2年に建てられたそうですが、中がとても綺麗で、そこで見る本物は圧巻でした。ずーっと見ていたいけど、案内の方を待たせるのも…ともどかしい思いでした。

ナビの案内どおりの道を車で向かいましたが、先に進むのに、かなり躊躇しました。川に落ちることなく、塀を擦ることなく、無事着いたのですが、拝観料1300円の金額に躊躇して、外から参拝させていただきました。

串本は、国道を走っている分にはよいが、一歩旧市街に入ると狭い道ばかりになる。軽自動車でも曲がり切れないような路地がいくつもある。

無量寺・芦雪館は串本小学校と串本町立図書館が集まった一角にある。

          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.
