「雨宝院」、通称・西陣聖天宮(しょうてんぐう)からスタート。弘法大師を開基とする寺院で、正式には北向山雨宝院大聖歓喜寺。真言宗泉涌寺派

Started the walk from "Uhoin", known as "Nishijin Shotengu".  The temple was founded by Kobo-Daishi Kukai, formally Hokkozan Uhoin Daishokankiji Temple.  The temple of the Sennyuji sect of Shingon Buddhism.

目の前は本隆寺、正式には慧光無量山本妙興隆寺法華宗真門流(日蓮門下の一派)の総本山。

雨宝院の門越しに見る古い瓦が埋め込まれた長い土塀が美しい。近年、テレビドラマのロケ地で、某女優が日傘をさしながらはんなりと歩いた場所。

In front was Honryuji Temple, formally  Ekomuryosan Honmyo Ryukoji Temple.  The head temple of Shinmon sect of Hoke Buddhism (a member of Nichiren Buddhism).

The long cray wall with embedded old roof tiles of the temple seen through the gate of Uhoin was beautiful.  In recent years, this was the location of a TV drama where an actress walked here with a Japanese parasol.

かつて弘法大師が開いた大聖歓喜寺は広大な境内を有したとのことだが、現在は雨宝院を残すのみ。境内には名木「歓喜桜」西陣五水の「染殿井」がある。

When Kobo-Daishi Kukai founded Daishokankiji Temple, the temple had a vast precincts, but now it has only Uhoin Temple.  In its precincts, there was the famous cherry blossom, "Kankizakura" and the "Somedonoi", one of the five waters of Nishijin.

堀川通りを越えて、茶道の千家の邸宅が立ち並ぶ界隈へ。表千家の茶室「不審菴」。表千家裏千家武者小路千家が千家を継ぐ三千家

Crossed Horikawa dori into a neighborhood lined with the residences of the Senke tea ceremony families.  "Fushin-an", the tea house of the Omotesenke tea family.  The Omotesenke, Urasenke, and Mushanokoji-senke are the three succeeding Senke families.

お隣の裏千家の茶室「今日庵」。先日の膏薬辻子の緒方で改装工事をしていた中村外二工務店裏千家の御用達店でもあるらしい。

The Urasenke tea ceremony room "Konnichi-an" was next door.  "Nakamura Sotoji Construction", which was renovating Ogata of Koyaku Zushi the other day, seemed the official supplier of the Urasenke.

Their satellite temple has a tomb of "Maruyama Okyo".  Maruyama Okyo and his disciples had an innovative style of painting, vividly capturing nature, flowers, birds and animals, which set the trend for Japanese painting in the following years.
