Le temple bouddhique Adashino Nenbutsu-ji est situé à Arashiyama. Il se trouve sur un endroit où les gens de la période Heian venaient apporter leurs morts.

Il est caractérisé par le rassemblement d'environ huit mille statuettes bouddhiques, symbolisant les esprits des morts, collectées vers 1903 et dispersées tout autour d'Adashino.
Adashino Nenbutsu-ji is a Buddhist temple in Arashiyama. In 811 Kūkai is said to have founded a temple, then Honen altered it to the present Nenbutsuji. It sits in an area where since the Heian period people have abandoned the bodies of the dead, exposing them to the wind and rain. Now, some eight thousand Buddhist statuettes, which had been scattered around Adashino then collected about 1903, memorialize the souls of the dead. During its well-known 'sento kuyo', a ceremony dedicated to the spirits of the dead, about ten thousand stone statues are lit up with candles.
