Fresh Greenery and Moss at Jizoin Temple

Jizoin (地蔵院) temple, built in 1367 by Hosokawa Yoriyuki (細川頼之), the Kanrei (管領, shogun's deputy) of the Muromachi Shogunate (室町幕府), is located in the Nishikyo-ward (西京区), very close to the Kokedera (苔寺) temple and the Suzumushidera (鈴虫寺) temple. The temple is also known as the place where the famous monk Ikkyū-san (一休さん) spent his childhood.

Since the temple is surrounded by bamboo forests, the premises are filled with clear fresh air. When a soft breeze blows, it feels so refreshing. That's why the temple is referred to as "Bamboo temple". I see green maple leaves glinting, reflecting the ray of the sun. Green carpet along the path is the covering moss. In this wondrous bamboo temple, I can feel these greenery creates a lot of negative ions.

As we all are living in this restless modern world, spending such a quiet time at this temple is very luxurious. Feeling so good!
