Welcome to “Iyashi” “Nagomi” secret spot and sightseeing in countryside of Japan !
The time has come !
This temple looks like “Shouren-ji” temple, right ?
But this is older than that “Shouren-ji”, in other words “the oldest temple” in Kumamoto prefecture !
The name is ” Josen-ji(Josin-ji).
It is in Yunomae.
An elegant atmosphere on this temple which was made in 1229 (Kamakura period) as a temple of Kume family.
Kume ruled around this area at that time.
In the temple, wooden Amida Trinity figure are enshrined.
Very pleasant and warm in spring time…
I wish this moment would go on forever.
Very beautiful garden, where are many gravestones.
Especially seven-storied and nine-storied stone pagodas are designated as important cultural assets.
The thirteen-storied pagoda is about 8.5m high.
This is worth seeing !
