The 54th pilgrim stamp office Chikamizan Hoshoin Enmeiji Temple

Temple
Chikamizan Hoshoin Enmeiji in Imabari City, Ehime Prefecture is a temple of the Shingon sect Buzan school and the 54th temple of the Shikoku 88-temple Pilgrimage. It is said that Gyoki carved a statue of Fudomyo as the principal image and built an edifice to open the temple. Kobo daishi reestablished it as a major religious and academic school later. It initially stood on top of Mt. Chikami but after going through several fires, it has moved to the current location. In the precinct, there is a temple gate which was a castle gate at Imabari Castle and was relocated. There are also a grave for Magobei Ochi, a village headman who saved farmers struggling with poverty, and the second oldest milestone of Shinnen boshi in Shikoku. From around the spring equinox to mid-April, the Japanese Andromeda beautifully blooms. *There is no access from the lane next to Kuwana Bowl and Sanuki Lease. *There is a signboard near Jitensha Kaikan on Prefectural Highway No.38 so follow the instruction on the board.

    近見山宝鐘院延命寺(ちかみざんほうしょういんえんめいじ)は、愛媛県今治市阿方(えひめけんいまばりしあがた)にある真言宗豊山派の寺だ。四国八十八ヶ所霊場第54番札所で、本尊は不動明王(ふどうみょうおう)2020年12月11日、この日は南光坊に参拝した。そこから車で、延命寺にやってきた。駐車場はとても広い。山門は、今治城の城門の一つを移築したものだ。入ってすぐに、売店がある。その並び...
  • 54番札所

    前の札所からが遠い。34km海沿いの路を歩くのがほとんどなので時間さえかければ楽勝です。コロナ禍なのか納経所はマクス着用やらなんやら張り紙が…マスクなしの方は挨拶を控えてなどなど。仕方ないとはいえなんか長い道のりを歩いてきたのに…と思ってしまいました。
  • 古い梵鐘があるお寺

    山門の外に江戸時代に作られた古い梵鐘がある。ちょっと小高いところに建てられた鐘楼が目印。残念ながら普段は突くことができず除夜のみだそうです。
