Konpirasha Enseiji Temple (金毘羅社 円政寺)

Constructed in 1254, Enseiji Temple has a torii gateway at its entrance—despite being a temple and not a shrine—and this stone torii is a city-designated Tangible Cultural Property. The temple grounds contain the Konpira-sha Hall (a Municipal Tangible Cultural Property) with its statues of the 12 zodiac signs. It is an important location, being a rare example of the syncretism between Buddhism and Shinto. The precincts also contain the rocking -horse (sacred horse) that Shinsaku Takasugi and Hirobumi Ito played with in their youth.

神社とお寺が共存しています。伊藤博文や高杉晋作が幼少期に学んだ場所とのこと。こちらの住職より、この地の他有名人も説明して頂き非常に楽しめました。会えると、ラッキーですよ。為になるお話満載。この地は、歴史あるすごい場所に気付かされます。

地図でみただけではわからなかったのですが、寺の入口は江戸屋横丁側にありました。境内は広くありません。毛利家の家紋があったり伊藤博文の幼少期の解説があったりと萩の人物満載の場所でした。寺ですが鳥居があり神仏習合の時代のものだからでしょうか。

          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.
