     京都 知恩院 方丈庭園

  

Chion-in (知恩院 Chion-in) in Higashiyama-ku, Kyoto, Japan is the headquarters of the Jōdo-shū (Pure Land Sect) founded by Hōnen (1133–1212), who proclaimed that sentient beings are reborn in Amida Buddha's Western Paradise (Pure Land) by reciting the nembutsu, Amida Buddha's name.

 

The vast compounds of Chion-in include the site where Hōnen settled to disseminate his teachings and the site where he died.

The original temple was built in 1234 by Hōnen's disciple, Genchi (1183–1238) in memory of his master and was named Chion-in. While the temple was affiliated more closely in the early years with the Seizan branch of Jodo Shu, its 8th head priest, Nyoichi (1262–1321) was deeply influenced by the priest Ryōkū, a disciple of Ryōchū who was the 3rd head of the Chinzei branch of Jōdo-shū Buddhism, and disciple of Bencho. Later Nyoichi's successor Shunjō (1255–1355) advanced this further by citing a biography where Genchi's disciple Renjaku-bo and Ryōchū agree that there existed no doctrinal differences between them.

  

Then Renjaku-bo said, "There is complete agreement between what Genchi and Bencho say in their basic teaching. So my disciples should from now on look at the Chinzei teaching as their own. There is no need to set up another school."

 

By 1450, Chion-in had become fully under control of the Chinzei branch, but had little direct control, due to the outbreak of the Onin War.[1] Numerous buildings in the complex were burnt down in 1633, but were entirely rebuilt by the third Tokugawa Shogun Iemitsu (1604–51) with the palatial structures that stand today.

Jōdo Shū head temple CHION-IN

Chion-in is the head temple of the Jōdo Shū (Pure Land) Sect of Buddhism. Located in the Higashiyama area of Kyoto, Chion-in is a quite a magnificent temple and I highly recommend visiting here to admire its architecture and gardens. In the early 1600s, Tokugawa Ieyasu, who unified Japan and established the shogunate that ruled Japan until 1868, as well as his son and grandson, donated large sums of money to help build the temple into what we see today.

 

Due to its affiliation to the Tokugawa family and the patronage it received from them, Chion-in was granted permission to use the Tokugawa crest.

Located in Higashiyama, Sanmon Gate is the main entrance to Chionin Temple. Standing 24 meters tall and 50 meters wide, it is the largest wooden gate in Japan and dates back to the early 1600s.

At the end of our first day in Kyoto, some of us still had the energy to shoot some illuminated temples near Gion area. This was shot near the Main Hall of the Chionan Temple.

 

A lot of people were passing by this area so I bumped down the exposure to 30 seconds to get rid of them
