Review of Iwamotoji Temple

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/06/29 そこそこの規模の遍路寺みたいですが・・・
今日の天候では如何に良い寺院へ参拝していても「良さ」は半減しますね。それほど旅行とかお遍路では天気が大切です。荒天では楽しさも半減以下となります。その大昔には雨になり、風になり、遍路したらいいじゃないか、と云うようなことも云われたらしいが、何も命を懸けて信者としてお遍路している訳でもないし・・・時代に合ったお遍路を楽しんでいるだけのいい加減な「先達」の私ですから好天でないとバスから下車する気にもな...
Reviewed:2019/06/08 四国お遍路巡りスタートのビギナーにもおすすめです。
岩本寺ではお遍路巡り用品も取り揃えられています。後、結願証も2000円で交付出来ます。ぜひ一度検討してください。

まずは、岩本寺へ。
ここはお気に入りのお寺で、何度も参拝に来ている。
駐車場に車を停め、山門へ。
花で美しく飾られていた。

まずは本堂に参拝。
ここの本尊は、5尊もある。
これは、五社神社の祭神だからだという。
・東大宮(一の宮):大日本根子彦太迩尊=不動明王
・今大神宮(二の宮):磯城細姫命=観世音菩薩
・中ノ宮(三の宮):大山祇命・吉備彦狭嶋命=阿弥陀如来
・今宮(四の宮):伊予二名洲小千命...

          The largest of Shikoku’s prefectures, Kochi is endowed with some of the island’s most exceptional sand beaches lining the Pacific Ocean, which narrows into the Shimanto-gawa, a huge river that stretches 196 kilometers into the prefecture, passing verdant mountains and hosting countless riverside activities. Whether you’re a pilgrim or not, Kochi’s 16 Buddhist temples that make up one leg of the Shikoku Pilgrimage are worth a visit, particularly Chikurin-ji for its five-tier pagoda.
