Seigantoji Temple Reviews
那智大社は、熊野三山の一つである那智山の斜面に沿って作られていました。この青岸渡寺もまた、那智大社の横にあり、いくつものお堂が斜面に沿って建てられていました。 もともと那智の滝を中心にした神仏習合の場所だったそうですが、明治時代の初期に青岸渡寺と那智大社に分離されたそうです。 鮮やかな朱色の社殿が並ぶ那智大社と対照的に、こちらの青岸渡寺は渋くて重厚感あるつくりでした。 私たちが車を停めた那... more »Nachi Taisha was built along the slope of Mt. Nachi, one of kumano sanzan. This Aokishi Toji temple was also located next to Nachi Taisha shrine, and a number of temples were built along the slope. It is said that it was originally a place of the God and Buddha study which centered on nachi falls, but it seems to have been separated from Aokishi Wataji and Nachi Taisha in the early meiji era. In contrast to nachi taisha, where the bright red shrines are lined up, the aogishi wataji here was a bitter and profound structure. The parking lot in front of the office of Nachi Taisha, where we parked, was a scenic spot to see the buildings of Aokishi Toji temple and the nachi waterfall behind it.
年寄り数人で遥々青岸渡寺を目指して参拝に行ってきました。本堂に足を踏み入れ 歴史を感じる素晴らしいお寺さんだと思いました が 何しろ遠方より長い時間をかけて移動をしているので 少し感動もあってぼーっとみんなで立ち尽くしていましたら 本堂に響き渡る 大きな声が突然 静かだったその場所にがなり声で そこー！邪魔だー！っと怒鳴られ我々 年寄りは怒鳴り声の方に目をやると ご朱印を書かれているかなり年配の... more »Several elderly people went to worship for The Far Aoki Wataji Temple. I thought it was a wonderful temple to step into the main hall and feel the history, but there was a little excitement because i spent a long time moving than the distance anyway, and a loud voice which echoed in the main hall suddenly sounded to the main hall when it was standing up with everyone. In the place where it was quiet, there by the voice! Get out of the way! We were yelled at, and when we looked at the shouting, a fairly elderly grandfather who had written a red seal was staring at us. I went out of the main hall right away, but i went out of my way to spend time and money, so I went to the reception desk to ask for a prayer of thanks to the main hall again.
The combination of three-story-pagoda and waterfall is excellent!
First of all, its name is really cool. The name of this temple reminds me an Indian missionary crossing all the way over the Blue Ocean.I feel something spiritual romance.
