Eihei-ji Temple永平寺

Temple

A Soto school Buddhist temple located in Eiheiji-cho, Yoshida District, Fukui which is also the head temple of over 15 thousand branch temples scattered across Japan. The temple was founded as a meditation hall by Dogen in 1244. The grounds are enclosed by ancient Japanese cedars over 600 years old and are dotted with over 70 structures centering around a complete seven-structure temple compound. Some of the temple’s many highlights include numerous delicate sculptures housed in various buildings around the grounds; a stunning decorated ceiling inlaid with 230 images; and an original copy of the “Fukan zazengi” which is registered as a National Treasure and kept in the temple’s treasure house.

          Northeast of Kyoto, the ancient Tojinbo Cliffs separate Fukui prefecture from the Sea of Japan in a stretch of land well worth exploring. Water sports and seaside delicacies are available in abundance as the spectacular rugged coastline flattens down into beaches to the west of the prefecture, while inland, Fukui is home to Zen Buddhist temples and historic ruins.
