Joruri-ji Temple (浄瑠璃寺)

This temple of the Shingon Risshu sect is located in Kamo Town, Kizugawa City, Kyoto. It is known as “Kutai-ji” (Nine-body Temple) due to the nine Amitabha Tathagata statues kept in the main hall. The garden, which represents the world of paradise, is a Jodo-style garden with Yakushi to the east, Amida to the west, and a pond in the center. The main hall has clay tiles laid laterally, and the interior pagoda houses a statue of Bhaisajyaguru. Both have been designated National Treasures. The standing statue of Kisshoten is famous as a Buddhist statue rarely shown to the public, and it is only displayed once each in spring, fall, and on New Year’s Day.

          Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
