いつも京都に行くと 四条や三条 河原町とか木屋町とかその辺で遊んだ帰りに 京都駅をこして京都南の高速のインターまで向かうが、
京都駅ちかくの 西本願寺と東本願寺に挟まれた感じの小道があって その途中にあります。
伝導院はその日は休館だったようですが、勝手に中に入って 暗い館内を写真撮りまくりで このレトロちっくな部屋や階段、そして
京都は、寺だらけで しかも一つ一つが馬鹿でかいというか 大きい、各寺も見どころがあり 特に季節季節でちがってくるので たまに行くと和室とかお堂とか庭を見て また、渡り廊下からそとの 木々や花々といった景色を見るのもいい。お茶・まんじゅうセットで 和室座敷にすわって お寺の情緒を楽しむのも非常にいい感じですが、そんな年寄りでもないので
I went to Hongwanji Temple in Kyoto. The townscape is nice. Small shops for Buddhist events are lined up.
There is “Dondo-in” around the left side of Nishi Honganji.
Every time I go to Kyoto, I pass through Kyoto Station and head for the expressway interchange south of Kyoto on the way back from having fun in Shijo, Sanjo, Kawaramachi, Kiyamachi, and so on. I can see a little You may not notice it very much, but this is “Donden-in”.
A place that feels sandwiched between West and East Honganji near Kyoto Station.
Near Kyoto Station, there is a small path between Nishi Hongan-ji Temple and Higashi Hongan-ji Temple. Because it is a path between temples, there are many shops selling Buddhist altars and fittings, and the townscape seen from Denden-in Temple is very atmospheric. He doesn’t often go to Kyoto, so it was the first time for him, but it’s a nice town.
Built in the Meiji period.
It is said that Denden-in Temple was built by Takenaka Corporation in 1902 with the design of modern architect Chuta Ito. After being converted into a life insurance company, an office, a bank, etc., it is now used as a research institute for Nishi Honganji Temple.
I feel Christian.
Dendo-in is also a cool, retro-style building. It’s a little bit like being sandwiched between two ridiculously huge temples.
I went inside and took a picture even though it was closed. Is useless.
It seems that Denden-in was closed that day, but I went inside without permission and took pictures of the dark interior.The retro-chic rooms, the stairs, and the ceiling lights were wonderful. However, I took a picture like that, and when I went outside, although it was on the premises, there was probably a meeting or training for young monks in a building outside, and I was told, “The building is closed today. It’s a day you can’t enter because of the sun.” I felt sorry and left immediately, but it was a little bad manners. I’m sorry···.
There are many large temples in Kyoto, and it is nice to relax inside.
Kyoto is full of temples, and each one of them is ridiculously huge, and each temple has its own attractions, especially with the seasons, so if you go there occasionally, you’ll see Japanese-style rooms, halls, and gardens, and you’ll also be able to see the outside through the connecting corridors. It’s nice to see the scenery such as trees and flowers. Sitting in a Japanese-style tatami room with a set of tea and steamed buns and enjoying the atmosphere of a temple is a very nice feeling, but I’m not that old, so I can’t go as far as visiting temples…
The path around Denden-in has a nice atmosphere.
But I feel good about this city. On the way, I ended up buying a Buddhist altar fittings and prayer beads. The one I saw when I was little, with a Buddha statue inside a circle of prayer beads, looks like it’s been magnified with a lens Dainichi Nyorai? I bought it with the intention of wearing it on my arm because I feel like I’m being protected.
