Suoukokubun-ji Temple (周防国分寺)

This temple is located in Kokubunji Town, Hofu City. It is one of the Kokubunji temples built nationwide by the Imperial Order of Emperor Shomu in 741, but is rare because it is only one of few remaining in the same location as the original construction. The temple preserves Important Cultural Property Buddhist statues such as the sitting Yakushi Nyorai as its principal image as well as standing statues of Nikko Bosatsu and Gekko and the seated Amida Nyorai and Shitenno.

前日防府市に出張で泊まりましたので
翌朝散歩を兼ねて防府八幡宮からこちらへと

現在の建物は比較的新しいようですが
当時の雰囲気は伝わりました。

立派な仁王門と大きな金堂がある、大きな立派なお寺。手入れ・管理もしっかりなされている感じ。時間が遅かったため、中まで拝観できなかったが、中を参拝されたい方は事務所まで、といった感じの掲示があった。

          Heading west along Japan’s largest island, Honshu, the very last prefecture you’ll reach is Yamaguchi, separated from Kyushu by a small strip of water known as the Kanmon Straits, which the far-reaching harbor city Shimonoseki looks over. With water at every turn, the seafood of Yamaguchi is an indisputable highlight, and we’re not talking just the usual fish dishes - the notorious fugu, or puffer fish, is a Japanese delicacy that was discovered in Yamaguchi prefecture, making it the best place to try it out.
