Eisho-ji Temple Reviews
永昌寺は、稲荷町駅の近くにある浄土宗の寺院です。7月の早朝に参拝しました。形の良い本堂の寺院です。この寺院は、1558年下谷御成小路辺長者町に創建され、1637年に現在の場所に移転されたとのことです。この場所は、講道館柔道発祥の地とのことです。講道館柔道の祖である嘉納治五郎がこの寺内に建てた１２畳の道場が発祥とのことです。神社仏閣、柔道に興味がある方にお勧めのスポットです。 more »Eishoji Temple is a temple of the Jodo Sect located near Inaricho Station. I visited the shrine in the early morning of July. It is a temple of the main temple with good shape. The temple was founded in 1558 in Shimoya Onekoji-ji-ji-cho and relocated to its current location in 1637. This place is the birthplace of Kodokan Judo. It is said that the 12-tatami dojo built in this temple originated from Jigoro Kano, the founder of Kodokan Judo. It is a recommended spot for those who are interested in shrines, temples and judo.
清州橋通り側が正門のようですが、稲荷町駅３番出口のすぐ横の細い参道を進むと味わいある山門があります。 1558年に尊譽榮全が創建した浄土宗のお寺で、ビルに挟まれた中にありますが、境内は庭も白砂もきれいに清掃されていました。 境内に講道館を建てたことから、ここが柔道発祥の地だそうです。 more »The Cheongju Bridge Street side seems to be the main gate, but if you follow the narrow approach right next to Exit 3 of Inaricho Station, you will find a delicious mountain gate. It is a temple of the Jodo sect founded in 1558 and is located between the buildings, but the precincts were cleaned with the garden and white sand. Since kodokan was built in the precincts, this is the birthplace of judo.
