  • The mountain gate has a two-layer structure and is a strange structure that is not like a temple. It seems to be a gate related to Fushimi Castle. Although it was a small temple, there were other highlights, such as asahi daikokuten, which was hideyoshi's buddha.

  • From fushimi otesuji shopping street of the arcade, if you enter the alley, genkuji temple. The Temple of the Jodo Sect. What caught my eye is the two-layer edamame. It's a slightly unusual style, like a gate. This gate was relocated to a part of the building in the castle at the time of the abandoned castle of Fushimi Castle. It is the one that it remodeled into the tower gate of the temple style. In the small temple in the precincts, daikokuten and Aizen Akio are also enshrined, and ants are worth seeing. I think that it is quite a moe spot for the Buddha image lover.
