Jodo-ji Temple浄土寺

Temple

This is one of the leading ancient temples of the Chugoku region. Located in Onomichi City, Hiroshima, it is the head temple of the Senyuji school of the Shingon sect. It is said to have been founded by Prince Shotoku in 616 as is known as the temple where Ashikaga Takauji prayed for success in battle. The main temple building, with its Irimoya-zukuri (formal tile hip-and-gable roof) and Hongawara-buki (tile roofing in which round and square tiles are laid down alternately) and the two-storied pagoda are registered as National Treasures, and the main gate and temple hall containing the image of Amitabha are Important Cultural Properties. In fact, the temple has such high historical value that the entire grounds are designated as a National Treasure. The inner shrine at the top of the mountain offers a spectacular view of the townscape of Onomichi and the sea.

参道の正面に立体交差の線路があります。電車と山門のコンビネーションは他では見たことがなかったので驚きました。
Reviewed:2018/11/25 代表する存在
千光寺と並んで尾道の古寺を代表する存在だ。聖徳太子の創建というから我が国仏教公伝と変わらない時代に開創している。古寺巡りではJR尾道駅から相当歩いたところにあるが、石段を登りきったところに見える本堂、阿弥陀堂、多宝塔の三建築が並ぶ様子はすばらしく見事だ。靴を脱ぎ、本堂に上がって手を合わせると心が安らぐ。なぜか本堂の屋根にとんでもない数のハトが集まっていた。

一応,ナビの通りに行けば駐車場にたどり着けました。ただしとてつもなく狭い箇所があります。3ナンバークラスの自動車は厳しいかと思います。
中は国宝建造物が二つあります。足利尊氏の縁のお寺と言うことです。勝負事の願掛けによいそうです。

          There is more than meets the eye awaiting any Hiroshima-bound traveler. Kicking off in Hiroshima city, the Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima Castle, and Shukkeien Garden offer a couple of days of exploring; however, the real beauty lies along the southern coast of the prefecture. There, a series of islands spreads across the Seto Inland Sea: from the mysterious sea-submerged Great Torii Gate at Miyajima Island to the first half of the islands that connect Honshu to Shikoku via six spectacular suspension bridges.
