Pilgrimages are always fun to hear about, but to undertake whole pilgrimage at a single site is unusual. But that's what this shrine offers - a line of 88 carved Buddhas, each representing one part of the actual Shikoku Pilgrimage. And the benefits that are supposed to accrue from that pilgrimage are apparently just as readily realised at this spot. The temple is a little way out of the city. The overgrown pine trees around the temple add a lot of mystical atmosphere. The building itself is a treasure trove of artifacts from the Sakate Clan.

Tentoku-ji Temple Reviews & Ratings

  • お墓参りしてきました。秋田の街並みが一望できました。

  • 本堂が改修中で見るべきものが何もありません。庫裏に行きましたが、裏の事務所に行けと張り紙がありましたが、通行止めで入れませんでした。佐竹氏の菩提寺と聞き期待してたのですが、正直ガッカリです。

  • 本堂修理中で拝見出来ませんでしたが、修理完了を待って、もう一度参拝したいと思います。御朱印帳に御朱印を頂きました。

  • 秋田市の古い寺院。現在改修工事中です。

  • 秋田駅からはちょいと不便な立地。車どこに止めようか迷った。参道からの置き石や松並木は見事。佐竹氏の菩提寺の雰囲気がある。まあ、肝心の御霊屋は外からちらり拝見でそんなに惹かれはしなかった。 ☆ 裏手の山の公園は静かでいい。時期によっては、憎き蜂どもが来やがるので用心に越したことはないですな。熊🐻情報は聞いてないけど、カモシカ出そう。
