Aiai jizo statue
Nestled amongst a thicket of tall bamboo stalks, Jikishian Temple began as a
thatched hut built in 1646 by the Zen monk Shoen Dokusho, one of the 10
disciples of the reputed Zen priest Ryuki Ingen. It was converted into a
convent under the Jodo Sect of Buddhism by the loyalist Tsubone Muraoka
(mother-in-law of Princess Atsuhime) at the end of the Tokugawa Shogunate.
A quaint custom available to all in the main hall is the 'omoidekusa,' on
which visitors write their grievances and they 'toss them in the trash' to free
themselves of their woes. There are various points of interest within the
temple confines including a hall for honoring the temple's founders, jizo
statues that guide miscarried and aborted fetuses to heaven, those that have
matchmaking powers and grant wishes, a kannon statue with an omoideku-
sa in hand, and the thatch-roofed Amidado Temple, which is open only on
Approach to the main hall in spring
special occasions.
Springtime brings camellias, weeping cherries, Thunberg spiraes, magnolias
and, in the garden of the main hall, rhododendrons. The genpei weeping
peach trees are another botanical treat because of the pink and white
flowers that bloom on the same tree. The grounds are beautifully covered in
the autumnal foliage of the Japanese maples for a good part of fall, but all
year-long there are blossoms to enjoy including hydrangeas, anemones,
bamboo, sarcandra glabra, coralberries, wintersweets and more. Approach to the main hall in autumn

Adashino-Nenbutsuji
Temple(B-3)
Built by the monk Kukai (774-835), this temple began as a
cemetery and place to mourn the dead. It was later
transformed into a hall for chanting prayers by the priest
Honen (1133-1212). Today, it belongs to the Jodo Sect of
Buddhism and is officially known as Kaseisan Tozenin
Nenbutsuji. The 8,000 stone Buddha figurines and gravestones
date back to the temple's days as a cemetery. On August
