Temple

The Daijiji Temple, founded in 1673, is famous for its temple gate built in a style known as dragon palace gate. The temple is constructed with gable pantile roofing and the large lower walls are finished in white lime plaster with curved soil wall edges, a style usually seen only on the continent, such as in China. The temple building burnt down in the Meiji fire of 1884 but it was rebuilt and designated as a protected building in Morioka City in 1991. The surrounding area including the temple grounds is also a protected environmental area. The principal object of worship at Daijiji Temple is the bodhisattva Nyoirin Kanzeon.

Reviewed:2018/07/15 山門は黄檗宗の特徴
盛岡駅からポチポチと歩きながらたどりついた寺です。池ノ下寺院群地区の一角を占めており、とても静かな境内です。早朝の雨上がりで、新緑がみずみずしく感じられました。原敬の菩提寺で有名ですが、寺院建築では山門に特徴があります。一瞬、宇治の万福寺と同じだ! と思いました。とすると黄檗宗(おうばくしゅう)? 日本では黄檗宗の寺院が少ないだけに貴重な存在です。盛岡市の保存建造物に指定されています。
Reviewed:2017/08/24 平民宰相として知られる原敬の菩提寺
中国式の寺なので、楼門や本堂はいかめしくて、それが特徴。
平民宰相として知られる原敬の菩提寺です。墓は、奥様の墓と同じ大きさの対。原敬夫婦の睦まじさまで想像できるようです。
Reviewed:2017/06/03 原敬の墓所のある寺院
原敬記念館を見学したので墓所にお参りに行きました。この寺院は、黄檗宗で三門は竜宮門と言われる形式で中国風です。境内はそれほど大きくないので原敬の墓所はすぐにわかると思います。

          A northern Tohoku prefecture promising peace and quiet, Iwate is sparsely populated, replacing people with snow-capped mountains, history-rich sites, and fields of crops that are to thank for the region’s delicious local cuisine. Meander along the three-city Golden Route, where you’ll visit the grand Buddhist temples of Hiraizumi and the Tono folk villages before tasting the three famed noodle dishes of Morioka.
