♫ Kyoto-Ohara Sanzen-in ① the garden of moss is beautiful than Moss Temple

Saihoji Temple, also known as Moss Temple, is a World Heritage Site.

It is said to be the masterpiece of Muso Soseki, a gardener in the world, but it is troublesome to go anyway.

Because I have to make a reservation a month or two in advance.

Moreover, since it is not a tourist facility, the garden will not be shown until the sutras are properly copied.

It's a hassle. Good news for those who are troublesome.


There is a temple where you can enjoy a magnificent moss garden that is as good as a moss temple!

That is "Sanzen-in" in Ohara no Sato. ♪ It is that temple that was sung as Kyoto-Ohara, Sanzen-in.

It's a little far from Kyoto station, about 40 minutes by car, but the atmosphere of the village is outstanding, which is not in Kyoto city.

It seems that there were women called Oharame who sold Shiso, a specialty of Ohara, in Rakuchu.

Certainly, you can see such an idyllic atmosphere and the original scenery of Japan.


By the way, Ohara Sanzenin.

The highlight is the moss-lined garden.

Beautiful and vibrant green like golf green, and moss-like fluffy feeling.

The composition is such that the trees grow and the temple can be seen beyond the green leaves. This is beautiful.

There is also Sukhavati Jodo.


The moss in the area where tall trees grow vertically is shaded

It seems that the place where the sunlight shines through the trees emits green light.

This is different from the moss in Hinata and is worth a look.

It's a mysterious extremity. No, it's a different world. It is a highly recommended spot that competes for one or two in Kyoto.


Kyoto Ohara Sanzen-in is said to have started when Saicho opened on Mt. Hiei during the Enryaku era (782-806).

After that, he moved to the present Ohara area in the Meiji era, moving from one place to another in Omi Sakamoto and Kyoto city.

That's why it's the Tendai sect. The national treasure is the wooden Amida Nyorai and the sitting samurai statues on both sides.

When I'm in Kyoto, it's natural to have a national treasure, and I'm totally grateful.


However, the arrangement of this national treasure is good. In the middle of the mossy garden, there is Ojo Gokurakuin.

It is a wooden hall with a cypress bark roof and is as light as an open terrace in the green.

It sits coolly there. The casual and profound stage setting certainly has a feeling of paradise.


However, rather than such a religious story, the healing space like a power spot is the most attractive.
