Review of Shonenji Temple

伝統的建造物群保存地区に指定されている今井町のなかにあります。
お寺は現在修理中?修繕中?のためまくが覆われていたので見学はできませんでした。

14世紀後半の創建。
江戸時代に再建された本堂(重要文化財)は修復中のため見ることはできないが、談山神社から移築された山門と1845年築の太鼓楼を見るだけでも訪れる価値はあるのではないか。
Reviewed:2017/11/04 修理中につき見学不可
浄土真宗で本願寺以外で初めて重要文化財に指定されたという寺院であるが、残念なことに解体修理であった。

Nara Main Areas

around-area-map

With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of “traditional Japan.” The largely green Nara city holds the majority of the prefecture's treasures, such as the iconic Todai-ji Temple, in which a 15-meter tall Great Buddha sits, and Nara Park, where deer flock to befriend passersby. While mountains are by no means hard to come by in this area, for hiking with a reward, head to the Kii Mountains' Yoshino district in spring, when the hillsides put on an impressive display of white and pink cherry blossoms.
