Shiramizu Amidado Temple白水阿弥陀堂


Shiramizu Amidado Temple was constructed in 1160, in the latter years of the Heian period, by Princess Tokuhime, the daughter of Fujiwara no Kiyohira. It is the only building in Fukushima Prefecture to have designated as a National Treasure. The way the Temple garden is designed, with ponds on the eastern, western and southern sides, is characteristic of the late Heian period Jodo (Pure Land) style of garden design. To reach the Amidado hall, visitors cross over a red bridge positioned directly in front of the hall. The architectural design of the Shiramizu Amidado Temple is said to have been influenced by temple architecture in Hiraizumi, the region where Princess Tokuhime was born.
