Chorin-ji Temple Reviews
JR足利駅東エリアの大坊山山麓にある曹洞宗の禅刹です。 室町時代後期、常陸国の一画に創建され、戦国時代の戦乱で焼失後、江戸時代中期に現在地に再建された歴史を辿っています。 再建にあたっては上杉謙信が多大な協力をしたそうです。 寺域は境内1万坪に背後の山林を合わせた広大な自然公園となっており、市民の憩いの場や大坊山ハイキングコースの入り口として開放されています。 本堂付近には道元禅師求道之像や庚申塚... more »It is a Zen temple of the Soto sect located at the foot of Mt. Ohbo in the east area of JR Ashikaga Station. It was founded in the latter half of the Muromachi period and in a single painting of the Hitachi nation, and was destroyed in the war ring of the Sengoku period, and follows the history of the reconstruction to the present location in the middle of the Edo period. Kenshin Uesugi cooperated a great deal in rebuilding. The temple area is a vast natural park that combines the forest behind the precincts to 10,000 tsubo, and is open to the public as a place of relaxation and the entrance to the Mt. Ohbo hiking trail. In the vicinity of the main hall, there are historical sites such as the Statue of Dogen Zen master Shodono, the Saizuka group, and the reservoir that was once built for irrigation and waterproofing. At the beginning of August, the temple gate will be lit up and an outdoor concert will be held around Tameike.
