那智山 正暦寺
Nachisan Shorekiji

casual Temple lodging
  • Kyoto > Ayabe・Fukuchiyama


First started in year 942. 

Kuyashonin who was named as Ichinohijiri dedicated the Kannon which he sculpted himself which became the origin of the establishment. The Kannon sculpture which can be only seen once every 33 years is a Buddhist statue which is kept hidden from the public, but there are many cultural assets which you may feel the history. Moreover, the the garden of Karesansui which was made in the Edo period still maintains its appearance today, and entertains the eyes of the visitors whom visit.

At the pilgrims lodgings, you may experience Buddhist practices such as the zen meditation and copying of the sutras, as well as activities to savor nature such as fishing and canoeing at the river. You may also practice zen meditation in the bamboo grove depending on the season.

During cold seasons, you may enjoy the sea of clouds that sit on the Yura river from dawn to early morning. It is an exclusive experience of starting a new day in the grand scenery.
