Jodo-ji Temple (浄土寺)

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.

Reviewed:2019/11/23 見ごたえのあるお寺
JR尾道駅近くから始めると古寺巡りコースの最後の方に参拝することになるお寺です。境内はとても広く、裏門や阿弥陀堂など重要文化財に指定されているものがありました。また絵馬がかわいらしいハトのものだったのと、山門前から新尾道大橋がきれいに見えたのが印象的でした。
Reviewed:2019/09/04 瓦が歴史を語る
尾道の浄土寺の阿弥陀堂の瓦は中世文明6年(1474)のヘラ書の残る瓦が残っています。
本堂は嘉歴2年(1327)の瓦が残っています。
凄いと思いませんか。
Reviewed:2019/04/12 見所の多い寺
尾道千光寺を出発して神社2寺15を巡り最後の浄土寺は駐車場があると言うので車で寺社巡りの最後になる浄土寺と海龍寺を目指しました。するといきなり進入路は解り難く、通路も一旦進入すると引き返せない程狭く、お寺近くは更に車1台通るのがやっとで入口にある2台位ある駐車場には駐車禁止の張り紙が!これ以上駐車場を探すのは無理なので10回近く切り替えしてやっと方向転換ができたので短時間で参拝して御朱印をもらいま...

          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.
