Buddhist temples in Kyoto

Tō-ji

8.4/10

Tō-ji (東寺 Tō-ji?) je budistički hram Shingon sekte smješten u japanskom gradu Kyoto. Njegovo ime doslovno znači Istočni hram, a uz njega je također postojao Sai-ji (Zapadni hram). Nalazili su se kraj Rashomona, kapije koja je vodila u japansku prijestolnicu za vrijeme Heianskog perioda. Formalni naziv mu je bio Kyō-ō-gokoku-ji (教王護国寺 Hram za odbranu nacije sredstvima Kralja doktrina?) što ukazuje da je u prošlosti služio kao svojevrsna duhovna zaštita japanske države. Tō-ji se danas nalazi u četvrti Minami-ku kraj ukrštanja ulica Ōmiya i Kujō, jugozapadno od stanice Kyoto.

Smatra se kako je podignuta krajem 8. vijeka, odnosno da ju je podigao Kukai, jedan od osnivača šingonske sekte.

Pagoda je visoka 54,8 m, odnosno predstavlja najvišu drvenu kulu u Japanu. Ona je sagrađena u Edo periodu po naredbi trećeg Tokugawa šoguna Iemitsua. Otada služi kao simbol Kjota. Pristup pagodi je dozvoljen samo nekoliko dana u godini.

A must-visit, despite its inconvenient location a taxi ride to the southwest of Kyoto Station. Tallest pagoda in Japan. Not much else to see but the pagoda and the lovely garden. Entrance is 600 Yen

I discovered this wonderful temple in the rain but enjoyed walking around the sakura gardens anyway. http://buffalotrip.com/kyoto/sights/to-ji-temple.html

【国宝】指定名称は「教王護国寺五重塔」… 幕府によって再建された五重塔で、初重内部では心柱の四方に金剛界四仏を安置しています。総高五四・八mは現存する木造塔として国内最高で、かつ均整のとれた姿は古都京都のシンボル的存在です。

Le jardin (dont la périphérie est gratuite et le cœur payant) et sa pagode sont jolis. Reste à savoir si ils valent le détour vue la position un peu excentrée et la quantité d'autres temples de Kyoto.

訪れた当日に偶然五重塔初層の特別拝観を開催しており、五重塔初層内部を参拝することができました。四方に仏様が安置されいます。とても貴重な経験をすることができました。
