Suoukokubun-ji Temple周防国分寺

Temple

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.

Reviewed:2019/12/14 大きいお寺
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。
Reviewed:2019/12/09 清々しい境内
防府天満宮から東へ徒歩で10分、周防国分寺があります。
1200年の歴史と数多くの文化財を有する歴史的価値の高い寺院です。
立派な仁王門をくぐると広い境内が開けます、清々しい空間です。
奥には重要文化財の金堂、風格のある素晴らしい伽藍です。
金堂には、藤原時代初期の木造日光・月光菩薩立像をはじめ多くの仏像、宝物があります。
社務所でお願いすれば有料で拝観できるようでした。
Reviewed:2019/11/20 防府の歴史あるお寺
防府天満宮のお参りと合わせて、こちらの周防国分寺にも足を運びました。一度に神仏両方にお参りできるアクセスです。防府駅からだと、防府天満宮よりもさらに5分程度先に位置しておりますので、徒歩ですと結構な運動になります。歴史は防府天満宮よりも古く8世紀中頃の創建のようで、現在の金堂も何度か再建された歴史があるようです。御本尊は薬師如来ということで、特段、当方は病気を患っておりませんので、家族の健康を願い...

          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.
