Maegamiji Temple (前神寺)

This is the head temple of the Ishizuchi sect of Shingon Buddhism and is located in Sunouchiko in Saijo City, Kochi Prefecture, and it is the 64th temple of the Shikoku 88-temple Pilgrimage. It is located at the foot of Mt. Ishizuchi, considered one of Japan’s seven holiest mountains and a quasi-national park. En no Gyoja laid the foundations for the temple, and it was built as a complete seven-structured temple compound under orders from Emperor Kammu (781-806). The imperial family and the feudal lords of the Edo period had a deep connection, and many believers remain today. Near the summit of Mt. Ishizuchi is the Inner Maegamiji Temple, and in July, worshipers wearing white clothing ascend the mountain at the start of the mountain-climbing season.

We are walking and using public transport to make the 88 Temple pligrimage. Today we had a slow day. We caught a train to Iyo-Himi (Station Y33, Jr Yosan Line, local train) and walked a very short...

四国八十八ヶ所霊場巡りで初めて行きました。敷地も広く、立派な寺でした。石鎚山修験の総本山で由緒もありました。御滝不動尊もまつられ、石段を上がると本堂があり、回廊も備えていてとても立派でした。三つ葉葵の寺紋も印象的でした。
Reviewed:2019/10/19 堂宇としては(個人的には)霊場会中、一番の印象深い建物です
参道から眺めるここの本堂は実に見事、感嘆します。参拝の度にその美しさと優美さが顕著になります。左右の渡り廊下を従えた本堂はさながら鶴が翼を広げたような形状で、本堂の複雑に折り重なった(ように見える)屋根との絶妙のバランスはわたし的には四国霊場会でNO1です。ここは真言宗石鉄派総本山、石鉄修験道の根本道場でもあります。尤も、境内のお滝不動に1円玉を投げる「余興」はいただけない、こういうことはすべきで...

          Stretched across the northwest corner of Shikoku island, Ehime is a nature-rich prefecture boasting beautiful coastlines and a rural center where mountains play host to 26 of the Buddhist temples that make up the Shikoku Pilgrimage. Matsuyama is home to an original post-feudal castle as well as Dogo Onsen, one of the country’s oldest natural hot springs. The northern city of Imabari marks the entrance to the Shimano Kaido, a road that crosses six spectacular bridges and several islands, forming a route between Shikoku and mainland Honshu.
