(Kyoto-63/Ginkakuji)日本美味しいもの巡り Japan delicious food and wine tour

久しぶりに銀閣寺へ。江戸時代、金閣寺に並び称されるようになった名称で、正式には東山慈照寺という。金閣寺同様、臨済宗相国寺派大本山相国寺」の塔頭寺院の一つ。

Went to "Ginkakuji Temple", a name that came to be associated with Kinkakuji Temple in the Edo period.  It is officially called "Higashiyama Jishoji Temple".  It is one of the satellite temples of "Shokokuji Temple", the head temple of the Shokokuji sect of Rinzai Buddhism.

その昔この地には天台宗浄土寺」があった。応仁の乱で消失後、ここに足利義政が、祖父である義満の北山山荘(金閣寺)に倣い、東山山荘を建て移り住んだという経緯。銀閣寺の境内図。広い。

In the past, there was a Tendai sect temple called "Jodoji Trmple" here.  After the temple was destroyed in the Onin War, Ashikaga Yoshimasa built "Higashiyama Villa" here, following his grandfather Yoshimitsu's Kitayama Villa (Kinkakuji).  Map of the precincts of Ginkakuji Temple.  It is large.

門を抜けると観音殿(銀閣)、国宝。最も有名な建物が突然現れるので驚く。

After passing through the gate, saw the Kannon Hall (Ginkaku), a national treasure.  Surprised by the sudden appearance of the most famous building.

東求堂(とうぐどう)、国宝。東山山荘時代の持仏堂で阿弥陀如来を祀る阿弥陀堂だったもの。創建当時の面影を残す建物。

Tougudo, a national treasure.  Formerly the Amida Hall, which enshrined Amida Buddha, during the Higashiyama Villa period.  The building retains the appearance of its original construction.

展望所から見下ろす銀閣寺。浄土信仰の東求堂と禅宗の庭園を組み合わせた革新的な設計。義政は政治家としてはイマイチだったが、文化人としては一流とされる。

Ginkakuji Temple seen from the observatory.  The innovative design combines the Tougudou of Jodo religion with a Zen garden.  Yoshimasa was not a great politician, but he was considered a first-rate cultural figure.

裏山に登ったところに湧き出すお茶の井は、昭和6年に発掘された。平安時代からずっと良質な水が湧き出している。日本最大の湖、琵琶湖を山向こうに持つ京都は水の都でもある。

The tea well, which gushes up the hill behind the house, was discovered in 1931.  Since the Heian period (794-1185), good quality water has been gushing out here.  Kyoto, with the largest lake in Japan, Lake Biwa, on the other side of the mountain, is also a city of water.
