Ryokaizan Yokokuraji Temple (両界山横蔵寺)

This temple is said to have been built in 803 by Saicho in the mountains at the end of National Route 267 in the Ibigawa-cho area of Ibi County, Gifu Prefecture. It enshrines 22 important cultural properties including Bhaisajyaguru, and is called Mino’s Shosoin (treasure house) because it has a collection of many paintings and books. Among them, the remains of Myoshin Hoshi, said to be a “sokushinbutsu” (self-mummified monk), can be seen in the “sharido” (hall where a Buddha’s remains are kept). The temple grounds and the mountain trees are very colorful in the autumn, and an autumn leave festival and tree illumination are held, delighting the eyes of many people as a popular spot for the changing autumn leaves.

舎利堂のミイラで有名ですが、瑠璃殿の鎌倉や平安時代の国指定の薬師如来像や十二神将立像が素晴らしかった。至る所に苔と紅葉があり、秋にまた来たいと思います。本堂は小さく立派ではありませんが、お寺全体が石垣の上にあり、お城のような気がしました。

滋賀と岐阜の寺と城巡りの旅の最終日は華厳寺の後、横蔵寺を参拝しました。華厳寺への行きと同様に揖斐川町はなももバスを華厳寺仁王門前11:50で予約できました。門前の富岡屋で満願そばの昼食を済ませ目の前のバス停に向かうと程なく車が来ました。同乗者は行き一緒だった中年の女性です。定刻より早めに出発し女性を樽見鉄道の谷汲口駅で降ろし横蔵寺に向かいます。駅から華厳寺総門前の道を通り山間の道を進み横蔵寺近くの...
Reviewed:2019/11/27 ミイラで有名
最澄が創建したと伝えられる横蔵寺。22体の国の重要文化財が安置され、多くの絵画、書籍を蔵していることから美濃の正倉院と呼ばれているそうです。中でも200年前に即身成仏したという妙心法師のミイラで有名です。私が見たミイラの印象は苦しそうで、成仏出来たのかと疑問を感じました。

          Tucked away in the very center of Japan, Gifu prefecture houses mountains, old towns, and one of Japan’s greatest hot springs, Gero Onsen. A tour of the prefecture’s traditional architecture will take you from the mountain-enveloped wooden streets of Takayama to the mountain village of Shirakawago, where visitors can explore 250-year-old thatched roofed houses known as gassho-zukuri.
