It is a precinct where unique buildings and Buddha statues are greeted.

First of all, let’s take a walk in the precincts.


The vast precincts that extend through the Niomon Gate, where Nio-son greets him, are dotted with buildings large and small, such as the Maya Hall, Kannon-do Hall, and Hachikaku Manfukudo Hall, which are full of sights.


There are many rare things such as the sand mandala of Tibet, and one of the most unique is the Sand Treading Dojo (Buddhist tour) at the 33 Kannon Mausoleum in Tyuugoku area.


If you walk around the dark hall and visit the shrine, you will be able to remove the sins that your self-confidence has accumulated.

Syabutsu is an easy-to-work practice practice for everyone

After a walk, this time we will try the Syabutsu experience.


It is “Photography Buddha” to practice drawing and copying Buddhist paintings.


Syabutsu draws the figure of Buddha based on the figure below, so it is easy for children and foreign people to take on the challenge.


First of all, the paint incense is painted in the hand, and the body is cleansed, and the preparation is completed if the ring and the nenju are worn.


I calm my heart, rub the ink, and draw at my own pace with a single stroke of feelings.

The biggest point is this “at your own pace”.

You can hear the calm space of only the babbling of the brook and the chirping of birds, and if you forget the time and immerse yourself in it, you will feel that the feeling sibetween your mind and your heart will completely disappear.

The finished one is paid to the temple and it is finished safely.


Two hours to the point. It’s so fast.


Meditation is also good to sit down and work on, but I think Syabutsu is easier to concentrate on because he moves his hands.


Why don’t you spend a luxurious time in a sacred place where you can face yourself?


There is also a capacity for the experience program, so it is safe to make a reservation in advance.
