I just laugh at Afro Jizo! “Konkai Komyoji” is also important for fans at the end of the Edo period.

"Konkai-Komyoji Temple" is built in the place where the Jodo sect, Honen Shonin, opened the Soan for the first time after getting off Mt. Hiei.

A place familiar to fans at the end of the Tokugawa shogunate, where it became the headquarters of Matsudaira Katamori, the lord of the Aizu domain who took up the Kyoto Shugoshoku position.

Anyway, why is the temple in the main camp again? I think, but

Actually, this is the place where Ieyasu Tokugawa was trying to become the main team in the event of an emergency.

Chion-in Temple and Konkai-Komyoji Temple are located in a slightly elevated place, which is perfect for setting up a castle.

In addition, there is also a shukubo, which can accommodate about 1000 people.

Ieyasu Tokugawa, looking to the future 260 years from now, is terrifying.


So, if there are many highlights that are legally superior,

The Aizu clan at the end of the Tokugawa shogunate, and more specifically, there are many "Shinsengumi" -like materials, and there are many highlights.

Moreover! !!

There is also an "Afro Buddha statue" that is sure to look good on Instagram, so it is a temple that is worth visiting even though it is not well known.


The word "Kyoto Shugoshoku Honjin" is immediately on the gate.

The Kyoto Shugodai has always functioned as a basis weight for Kyoto from the Tokugawa Shogunate,

At the end of the Tokugawa shogunate, the security of Kyoto became extremely bad, such as assassination and Tsujigiri.

Therefore, the Kyoto Shugodai was newly established.

Well, the police can't control it so much, so I feel like I'm going to put in an army.


There is a grave of the Aizu clan who died in the "Battle of Toba-Fushimi" as the Kyoto Shugoshoku.

Even so, the Aizu clan has an unfortunate image of Byakkotai.

Originally, Kyoto Shugodai also cost a huge amount of war expenses, and it seems that he didn't really want to do it.

However, the first generation of the Aizu clan was the child of Hidetada Tokugawa, the second shogun (not between the main room and the concubine).

It was discovered by Iemitsu Tokugawa, the third shogun who noticed its existence, and was made the lord of the Aizu domain.

Feeling the gratitude for it, the lord of the Aizu domain said, "The Aizu domain should be the guardian of the shogun" as a family tradition for generations.

I decided to be struck by Naosuke Ii.

When it comes to doing it, the honest Aizu clan will prepare for death.

Thank you for your time.


A majestic mountain gate. It's fine.


A temple that was thought of as a castle. It's wide.


Mikagedo. A sitting statue of Honen when he was 75 years old is enshrined.


Well, this certainly seems to accommodate 1000 people.


The memorial tower of the river, the main room of Hidetada, the second shogun. It's the third daughter of the three Azai sisters.

The first feudal lord of the Aizu clan was Hoshina Masayuki. The fourth son born quietly by Ietada Tokugawa.

Seishitsu no E often appears as a jealous character in taiga dramas. ..


So, when I was walking near the memorial tower of the river,

Yeah? ?? What is that? ??


Hey, what are you trying to blend into the landscape with your face?

Obviously the character is strong.


Goodbye! !! The visual impact is too great.

However, the creator did not carve it with half a joke, of course, but thankful Jizo-san, "Gokoshiyui Amida Buddha".

Even in the rakugo story of "Jugemu Jugemu", "Goko" represents a long time.

The unit of "rejection" is that a celestial maiden comes down once every few years on a large rock with a thickness of 160km and strokes it with clothes.

The rocks are being scraped little by little, and the time it takes for the rocks to disappear is said.

It is a ridiculous unit of time. .. That is 5 times. A tremendous lol.

In other words, the expression "If you think about it for such a long time, your hair will grow."

It seems rather short for that. ..


When I was making this, I was definitely laughing while carving.


Takeuchi Seiho's grave. A leading figure in modern Japanese painting and the first recipient of the Order of Culture.

You can see the works here and there in the temples and shrines of Kyoto.


Enko Daishi Mikagedo. Enko Daishi is Honen.


The round stone is a little interesting.


A vast grave area. There is a pond in front of this area, and it looks like the Paradise Pure Land across the Sanzu River.


When I climb up to the three-storied pagoda, I feel like I've done my best.


Overlooking the town of Kyoto from the three-storied pagoda.

By the way, all the graves face west. It seems that he is trying to worship the sunset in the west.

I see.


By the way, fans at the end of the Tokugawa shogunate head to the must-go "Aizu Cemetery".


It is quietly located in a place isolated from the graveyards.

Neighbors have been cleaning since Sunday morning.

The Aizu clan who have a strong image of bad luck. I was relieved to see that I was still carefully cared for in this way.

It was good. Please sleep peacefully.


It's okay to change places. There are many places to see here as well.

An exhibit that shows Honen's personality and an audience with Matsudaira Katamori that Isami Kondo also came.

Books related to Shinsengumi, etc.

In addition, there is also a tiger trick art (two animals become three depending on how you look at it).


There is also a garden made by a famous gardener in the back. Surprisingly, there are many highlights and I am in trouble.

Ueya Kato Zouen Co., Ltd. does a pretty good job among modern gardeners in Kyoto.

And, how to get to Konkai Komyoji, which has many attractions,
From Kyoto Station, take a bus from JR Kyoto Station

City Bus No. 5 …… Get off at Higashi Tennocho, 15 minutes on foot
City Bus No. 100 ... Get off at Okazakimichi, 10 minutes on foot

Is the closest.
