Review of Horyu-ji Shoryo-in

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2020/05/04 柿くへば…
聖徳太子の秘仏が安置されている仏堂だ。非公開なので普段は見ることができないが、3月22日のお会式のみ開帳される。どちらかといえば普段は納経所としてなじみ深い。法隆寺にはいくつかの御朱印があるが、ほどんどの御朱印が聖霊院の納経所でいただける。また、院の前に広がる鏡池のほとりに正岡子規の有名な句「柿くへば…」の碑が立っているが、その句は聖霊院の前にあった茶店で詠んだという。
Reviewed:2020/04/19 聖徳太子の尊像を安置
西院伽藍を出ると鏡池があります、池のほとりの石碑には正岡子規自筆の句が刻まれています。
その前にあるのが聖霊院(鎌倉時代・国宝)。
聖徳太子の尊像(平安末期・国宝)を安置するために、東室の南端部を改造した伽藍です。
中に入って拝むことができ、御朱印はこちらで頂けます。
「以和為貴」の御朱印は、「和を以って貴しと為す」という意味で、聖徳太子が制定した十七条憲法の「和を以て貴しと為す」そのものです。

          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.
