  • "From Naniwa they continued their voyage, sailing in the bay. As they proceeded they looked back on the scenes they had left. They saw all the mountains veiled in haze, growing more and more distant.....  more »
  • The Present Koji Temple is a temple of jodo Shinshu Honganji sect located about a 5-minute walk from sumaji Station on the Sanyo train. I visited the shrine when I walked around the area in February. This temple was once called Genji-ji temple and Genkoji-ji Temple, and is said to be the site of the residence of Mr. Hikaru Hikaru, the main character of the Tale of Genji. In the precincts, there was also a monument to the song of the Haiku poet Matsuo Basho of the Edo period. Plum blossoms and plum sawning were blooming beautifully. It is a recommended spot for those who are interested in shrines, temples, and literature.
