Iwamotoji Temple (岩本寺)

This temple belongs to the Chisan sect of Shingon Buddhism and is located in Shimanto Town in Takaoka County, Kochi Prefecture, and it is the 37th temple of the Shikoku 88-temple Pilgrimage. It is said that the Buddhist priest Gyoki founded it between 729 and 749, and it is known for its “seven wonders” that are associated with Kukai. There are principal images of five deities: Acala, Kannon, Amitabha, Bhaisajyaguru, and Ksitigarbha. The temple grounds contain the oldest hall with an enshrined statue of Kobo Daishi, as well as 575 ceiling paintings that adorn the main hall, constructed in 1978.

窪川駅から徒歩10分弱。
天平年間(729年-749年)創建の真言宗智山派の寺院。四国八十八箇所霊場の第三十七番札所。本尊は不動明王、観世音菩薩、阿弥陀如来、薬師如来、地蔵菩薩。ずいぶんと開かれた寺院であり、石段には「LOVE & PEACE」「WELCOME TO...

四国遍路・第37番札所の岩本寺宿坊に泊まりました-
和室・素泊まり利用、朝夕の食事は窪川の街中にある地元のお店で食べました。
お遍路さん以外にも、観光・ビジネス出張の方にもオススメできます!
キャッシュレス決済OK、館内はオープンな雰囲気で居心地はとっても良かったです-
ちなみにお寺の裏には線路があり、コトコト電車が走っています。

最後に「静けさの中で朝のお勤め」四国にきたら体験しないとですね...
Reviewed:2020/03/27 カードが使えた!
四万十観光に向かう道中に寄りました。お遍路さんに造詣が深くないので比較することが出来ないのですがお寺でもクレジットカードが使えるんですね。御朱印に記帳していただく際の代金や駐車場代金はそれぞれ300円、200円現金で支払いましたがキャッシュレスがここまで進んでいることに驚きました。

          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.
