Kourinji Temple香林寺

Temple

"A Soto Buddhist temple built in 1651 after the chief retainer of Kaga Domain asked the domain's lord to do so. Widely known as a temple which grants wishes, the temple is popularly visited by worshippers from around the country. The way to pray for your wish is unique-wearing a cord tied to a sign with your wish on it around your shoulder, you must circle a path called the ""Road of Happiness"" encircling statues depicting arhats and the 12 signs of the Chinese zodiac three times counter-clockwise. Some of the temple's many other highlights include the ""Kofuku Jizo,"" a statue of Kshitigarbha which grants people's prayers for children and healthy child growth; a white statue of the deity Fudo which grands beautiful skin; and a Daruma statue which grants improved luck."

Reviewed:2018/11/28 歴史ある寺
中に入るとまず説明が聞くことができます。。歴史ある建物のようですが、綺麗に保たれています。庭の紅葉が綺麗でした。

見ていて癒されるお寺でした。
係りの人の対応もよく願掛けも有名とのことでお願いしました。
季節の草花を見つけるのも楽しかったです。
木村雨山の作品も展示されており見入ってしまいました。
また機会がありましたら寄りたいです。
Reviewed:2018/10/20 建物像は400年の歴史でしたが?
建物や像は400年の歴史があり、とても興味深く拝見しました。拝観料500円、お寺の男性の方が20分くらい詳しく穏やかに説明して下さいました。御朱印は無く代わりの物がありましたが100円、さらに住職は施設などへ外出の為ほとんどお寺にはいないそうで日付が書けないという理由で頂けませんでした。
お庭の願掛けコースも新しく作ったという感じで可愛いお地蔵さんや干支も趣きが感じられませんでした。たすきも達磨へ...

          Long, thin Ishikawa prefecture runs along the Sea of Japan up into Noto Peninsula. Highlights of the seaside towns lining the west coast include Kanazawa, often described as a "Little Kyoto" thanks to its old wooden tea houses and geisha culture as well as its picturesque Japanese garden, Kenroku-en.
