Senjuji Temple (専修寺)

Located a five-minute walk from JR Ishinden Station, this is the head temple of the Shinshu Takada sect, one of 10 sects of Pure Land Buddhism, with over 600 temples throughout Japan. On November 28, 2017, Mieido (hall housing sacred images of the sect founder) and Nyoraido (main hall) were designated as Mie Prefecture's first National Treasure buildings. The grounds are twice the size of Tokyo Dome, and it is a huge temple with 11 nationally-designated Important Cultural Properties besides the two National Treasures. There is no admission free, and you can go inside the temple from 6:00 to 15:30. Also famous for its lotuses, you can enjoy the various kinds of lotus flowers that bloom all over the temple grounds and the stunning lotus pond in the summer.

Review of Senjuji Temple

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2017/01/22 Best Temple in Japan
If you like temples this is one of the best in Japan to visit. It is very large, not crowded and surrounded by a lovely old town. It has many of the old features restored to its original condition...
Reviewed:2020/04/11 2017年国宝指定
平成29年度に国宝指定されたてのお寺さんです。それも一気に二棟。御影堂と如来堂の二つお堂です。その他重文指定の建物が十一もあります。
Reviewed:2020/03/03 1月上旬は近隣交通渋滞
1月上旬には、寺の大きな行事があるようで、近隣の道路は交通渋滞となります。そのことに気付いた時には、すでに遅く、3分で通過できるところが30分かかってしまいました。手前に予告看板の設置が求められます。

          Spread across the eastern side of the Kii Peninsula, Mie prefecture boasts hundreds of kilometers of pretty coastline comprising the oyster-rich Toba city and Shima National Park all the way down to Kumano, a city that marks the beginning of part of the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage, which runs into neighboring Wakayama prefecture. However, Mie is best known for the Ise Jingu Shinto shrine inland, one of the oldest and largest shrines in the country.
