  • Ono City in Hyogo Prefecture is "Abacus Town". I can't remember when it was the last time I saw the abacus, but in the present day I feel like never-ending, but the well known castellan in Ono is a Pure Land temple. It is free to stroll in the precincts. I have not seen it, but it seems to be a famous place of hydrangea. The Pure Land of the national treasure, Yakushido, which is an important cultural property of the country, and front shrine and the shrine of the Hachiman shrines of the Guardian, there is enough worth watching only from the outside. However, the true value of this temple is in the Amida Sanson statue, which is enshrined in a pure land, with a 500 yen. It shines from the outside of the hall if it is dusk on a fine day in the middle of August from the middle of July, and the state of the pure paradise is developed in the front of the sky in the halo of the golden image as for the sun to shine though the grandeur and the beauty of Amida Sanson image are wonderful. It is not something that can be seen at any time, but it is worth it to choose the day and time purposely. This is not to say, but if the Jodoji was in the urban areas of Himeji or Kyoto, Nara and Osaka, there would be several buildings on the west Side, and the beauty of the Jododou, coupled with the sunset, would have been impaired. Please enjoy the scenery unique to Ono city. The evaluation is ★ Five with the Sunset correction of the summer, and the value of four ★ is a margin without it.

  • Thanks to the local people, I was able to admire the beautiful Amida Buddha statue and the Jizo of the back mountain. The Watering field and the stone monument which are reused the stone room of the tomb of the Garden are also places of interest.
