Jingosan Komyozenji Temple - Dazaifu, Fukuoka Prefecture

About 5 minutes walk from Dazaifu Station Nishitetsu.

Was built in the late 13th century. Is located near Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine.

Front of the gate
Aka "Green moss temple" is also called. Famous dry landscape garden and rock garden.

Rock Garden (front garden)
15 stones are arranged in the shape of chinese character "light".

In the main hall
Put your donation, enter the main hall. Pass through here to the backyard.

"Green moss temple" was named after this dry landscape garden.

Green moss represent the continents and islands, and white sand represent the water and ocean.

I visited in December, autumn leaves had fallen out.
