Isshinji Temple - Review

It's said this shrine was founded in the 12th century by Honen. Several key figures in Japanese history have been associated to this shrine. Tokugawa Ieyasu was its patron. 19th century Kabuki actor Ichikawa Danjuro VIII was buried here. The temple is famous for the statues it make of its deities, and how it makes them. When it began running out space to store the urns of ashes of its devotees, the temple mixed the ashes into resin and made statues of gods out of them. Each sculpture (which are all of Amida), incorporates the ashes of over 100,000 people. Check out the temple gate, which is unusual for Japan - all steel and glass and concrete. The grounds are a pleasant area, with benches and tables where people can often be found reading.
