Unshoji Temple雲祥寺

Temple

Unshoji Temple, built in 1596, is famous as a temple connected to Osamu Dazai. The fact that he was brought to Unshoji Temple as a child by his baby-sitter is depicted in his works, and after that he also visited when he evacuated to his family home to escape the air raids. The Osamu Dazai Historical Monument was also built in 2008. It is a seven minute walk from Kanagi Station on the Tsugaru Railway Line.

津軽三味線資料館の斜め向かいにあるお寺で、太宰治が幼い頃によく手を引かれて訪れたというお寺
南台寺の方が個人的にはお勧め

太宰治が子どもの頃に見た地獄絵図が飾られています。
境内の入口に立つ石碑の台座にプレートがあるのですが、そこには『「皇風」とは「天皇の仁政、天子の徳」です。この国は侵略戦争を行い、アジアではおよそ二千万人の命を奪い、三百万人以上の自国民の命を奪いました。・・・』などと書かれていました。
また、住職は慰安婦少女像のために寄付を韓国の東国寺にしているそうです。

旧金木町に建つ寺院です。太宰治の生家からも近く、太宰治が幼い頃に良く遊びに行った寺としても知られています。金木駅を降りて、駅前の通りを真っ直ぐ西に向かうとあります。最初のY字路を右方向に進んで行くと、津軽三味線会館の手前の右手側にあります。
創建は安土・桃山期で、九戸政実の乱で落ち延びてきた武将が建立したそうです。弘前藩からの庇護は受けていたようですが、伽藍はそれほど大きくありません。鐘楼門は文化...

Aomori Main Areas

Centuries-old stories of samurai at Kakunodate and the remains of millennia-old archaeological sites including the likes of Isedotai invite history buffs to delve into Aomori's fascinating history. As the most northern prefecture on the Japanese mainland, Aomori enjoys a cooler climate, which makes it a welcome escape from the southern cities for combining castles, art galleries, and summer festivals with the great outdoors.
