やまぐちきみろう in the last week

I started visiting Dojoji, the legendary Anchin Kiyohime. From beautiful and splendid temples in Kyoto, Nara, etc. The simple Dojo-ji Temple consists of the first 60 steps and above. I could feel the ancient atmosphere from the Niomon gate. This is one of the best temples I've visited. You can enjoy the ruins of the bell hall and many mysterious things. On the way home, I bought some bell buns.

You can park your car and then walk. There were some stone steps. The inside is spacious and you can relax. On the way back, I bought a Tsurikane Manju at the souvenir shop downstairs.

Admission fee ¥700 (Treasure Hall) Goshuin stamp ¥300 (there is a place to write it, so you can basically write it on the spot) I came to this place as a pilgrimage to a sacred place, More Like a Flower than a Flower. The main attraction is the Treasure Hall, but it was rather scary because there were so many national treasures and important monuments lined up. I think it's a must-see for those who love temples and Buddhist statues. I was lucky because I was able to see the main shrine for free only in the fall.

Visited for the cherry blossom. Nice view, quite and peaceful in weekday. ¥500 car park is a little bit expensive.

The legend of Anchin and Kiyohime is kind of like Romeo and Juliet, but with a dragon.
