Shonen-ji Temple Reviews
雁木通り・仏壇通りの飯山駅側入口辺りです。先ず、１１月下旬で一部分枯れていましたが紅葉して残っている部分もありました。紅葉の中を山門前の階段を登ると山門の裸電球の灯りが風情でした。山門を入ると左側に鐘楼、正面に本堂、右側に庫裏、前庭の樹木は枯れていましたが、緑の苔が一面に生えて、また、違った風情でした。本堂は大正時代に火災で焼失、昭和４３年に再建、変わった造りと思ったら天平時代の正倉院を模している... more »It is the entrance of Iiyama station side of Tochigi street and Buddhist altar street. First of all, it was withered in the end of November, but there was a part that remained with autumn leaves. When I climbed the stairs in front of the mountain gate in the autumn leaves, the light of the naked light bulb of the mountain gate was the atmosphere. When I entered the gate, the bell tower on the left, the main hall in front, the back of the storehouse on the right side, and the trees in the front yard were dead, but the green moss grew all over and it was a different atmosphere. The main hall was burned down by fire in the Taisho era, rebuilt in 1968, and if you think it was a strange building, it mimics the Masakura-in of the Tenpei period.
庭園が綺麗なお寺です。 秋には紅葉と苔のコラボレーションが楽しめます。 周囲がお寺に囲まれていて場所がわかりにくいですが、 坂上という信号から飯山線の反対側に伸びる細い道の突き当たりになります。 山門したの入り口に”浄土から願われていた和の心”という 親鸞を彷彿とさせる句がありした。 more »The garden is a beautiful temple. In autumn, you can enjoy the collaboration of autumn leaves and moss. The surrounding area is surrounded by temples, so it's hard to find a place, It becomes the end of a narrow road extending from the signal called Sakagami to the other side of the Iiyama line. At the entrance of the mountain gate, it is called "the heart of the sum that was desired from the Pure Land" There was a phrase reminiscent of Shinran.
