Hogenji Temple (鳳源寺)

4.0

Temple

This Buddhist temple was founded in 1633 as the family temple of the Asano clan by Asano Nagaharu, the third lord of the clan. The temple’s grounds adjoin Ozekiyama Park and are dotted with cultural properties tied to the famed 47 ronin. An impressive weeping cherry on the grounds is said to have been planted by Oishi Kuranosuke, chamberlain of Ako Domain, when he visited the area on the occasion of Asano Nagaharu’s daughter Agurihime marriage to Asano Takuminokami, the man whose forced suicide instigated the events of the 47 ronin. The majestic tree stands 30-meters-tall and the temple’s grounds are one of the city’s leading cherry blossom-viewing destinations; the weeping cherry on the grounds of the Dairakuji Temple is also said to have been planted from one of this tree’s buds. Some of the temple’s many other highlights include the Gishido temple, which enshrines wooden statues of the 47 ronin; and a stone spire under which is buried the hair of Agurihime.

Review of Hogenji Temple

三次浅野藩の菩提寺です。大きな鬼瓦5メートルが残っています。寛政9年(1797)と聞いていますが大きさにびっくりです。
浅野内匠頭の奥さんの遺髪塔も有ります。桜の季節は良いようです。

ノスタルジックな三次の本通りの近くです。尾関山公園の目と鼻の先で、三江線の尾関山駅からも歩けます。静かな一角にあります。

          There is more than meets the eye awaiting any Hiroshima-bound traveler. Kicking off in Hiroshima city, the Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima Castle, and Shukkeien Garden offer a couple of days of exploring; however, the real beauty lies along the southern coast of the prefecture. There, a series of islands spreads across the Seto Inland Sea: from the mysterious sea-submerged Great Torii Gate at Miyajima Island to the first half of the islands that connect Honshu to Shikoku via six spectacular suspension bridges.
