Shourinji, Kyoto Reviews

  • Great experience, peaceful place to come for those in search of serenity. Very kind Monk, highly recommended.

  • Respectful

  • 正午前後に到着、本堂に向かうと大勢の老若男女が座っていました。 一旦退却して、15時過ぎに再訪したところ、かなり減ってはいましたが、まだ10名ほどが本堂に座り込んでいます。 本堂に上がるところに貼り紙があり、「今日は35番まで」と書かれていました。 ご住職の手書きのご朱印を、皆さん待っているのですね。 左手の広間ではご住職がいろんなお話をされながら、ご朱印を記されていました。 右手には書き置きのご朱印が頂けますが、その種類の多いこと、ざっと20種類近くあります。 迷った挙げ句、ご本尊(毘沙門天)、大日如来、地蔵菩薩 の三種を頂きました。 猫やカエルの姿もあって、とても愛らしいご朱印です。 ご朱印帳も英語版などバラエティーに富んだラインナップなので、選ぶのが大変そうです。 こじんまりしたお寺さんの人気の理由がわかりました。

  • 季節のご朱印を求めて何度も訪れる方が多いように思います。直接書いていただけるのは、午後からなので、書き置きのものをいただいてきます。 お庭は広くありませんが、ゆっくりされるなら、夏場は虫除けスプレーをオススメします。

  • 特別公開で拝観した事はありますが、まだ御朱印はいただいていません。 天文19年(1550)の創建だそうです。本堂は近衛家の大玄関を移築したものだそうです。その後、東福寺仏殿内に密かに安置されていた定朝作と伝わる毘沙門天像を本尊としてお祀りしています。
