Kairyuji Temple海龍寺

Temple

Kairyuji Temple was established in 1245. In the temple there are the tombstone of Takemoto Yatayu, a Bunraku performer and the Okyozuka monument. As the Bunraku (classical Japanese puppetry) uses the hands, praying while stroking a certain part of the monument is said to improve a person’s artistic skills. A thousand-armed Kannon is the temple’s principle image, and it is an important prefectural cultural property. Other temple treasures including statues of Fudo Myoo (Acala, one of the Five Wisdom Kings) and Amida Nyorai (Amitabha Tathagata) are also must-sees. It is approximately a 10-minute drive from JR Onomichi Station.

Located next to Jodoji, Kairyu-ji is the 7th stop of the 7 temple route.

Behind the temple also a rock mountain with chains for climbing experience.

古寺巡りでJR尾道駅から延々歩いてくると、この寺が最も西側にある。古寺巡りの終わりというわけではなく駅に帰る折り返しでしかないのだが、山門を見ると、ちょっと達成感を感じるから不思議だ。山門をくぐった右側には江戸時代の人形浄瑠璃家「文楽」と「竹本弥太夫」の墓があるが、現地の説明版によると、これは追善供養のために地元の旦那が立てたものだという。後背には存在感がある岩壁がある。

持光寺から始まる尾道七仏巡りの第七番目の寺院になります。山門をくぐると人形浄瑠璃文楽の墓があります。お経の塚を触れることで技芸が上達するそうです。

          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.
