Bekku-san Nankobo

Temple
Located around seven minutes’ walk from Imabari Station, Bekku-san Nankobo is the 55th temple of the Shikoku 88-temple Pilgrimage. The Temple’s full name is Komyo-ji Kongo-in Nankobo; it is the only temple on the Shikoku 88-temple Pilgrimage route that has the character “bo” (meaning a priest’s or monk’s residence) as part of its name. The Temple was established as a Buddhist temple associated with the Oyamazumi Shinto Shrine, at which worshippers pray for the safety of people traveling by sea. The tranquil atmosphere of the Temple precincts makes it popular with both tourists and locals as a place to come and relax. The Kotohira-gu Hall and the Daishi Hall with its pyramidal roof, both of which escaped damage during bombing raids in the Second World War, are particularly worth seeing. The Temple also has calligraphic works and a bamboo hat that belonged to Kawamura Kizan (the first calligrapher to receive the Japan Art Academy Award) which were given to the Temple as offerings.

    別宮山金剛院南光坊(べっくざんこんごういんなんこうぼう)は、愛媛県今治市別宮町(えひめけんいまばりしべっくちょう)にある真言宗御室派の寺だ。四国八十八ヶ所霊場第55番札所で、本尊は大通智勝如来(だいつうちしょうにょらい)2020年12月11日、この日はミスター・バーク今治店でランチを済ませた。そこから車で、南光坊の駐車場にやってきた。駐車場は分かれているが、台数は置けそうだ。本堂...

    今治駅から近いので区切りにちょうどよい。御寺の境内に車が乗り入れている感じ?納経所は隅の方にある御寺とはまた違った趣のある建物です。正面の門には四天王。迫力あります!
  • 今治駅から歩いて行ける札所。

    駅から歩ける札所はありがたい。今治戦災の碑、芭蕉の句碑、深川正一郎の句碑がある。隣には別宮大山祇神社がある。
