Fukiji Temple is one of major temples located in the Kunisaki penisula where Buddism flourished. The temple dates from the 8th century and the main hall erected in the 12th century is the oldest wooden structure in Kyushu. The main hall is dedicated to Amida Buddha and is one of the most famous of its kind, along with Byodoin in Uji and Chusonji in Hiraizumi.

Legend has it that the main hall was built from a single Japanese nutmeg tree. You can see colorful wall pictures portraying themes of Buddha, which can be only viewed on a sunny day for preservation. The precincts have huge ginkgo trees that form a golden carpet of fallen leaves in autumn with a backdrop of red maple colors.

The secret is out but this little Temple with it's charming inn is simply amazing.
The food is on a whole new level and the surrounding nature is serene.
Definitely should be on your list when visiting Kunisaki.

令和2年1月1日 六郷満山
国宝 蓮華山 富貴寺
4番特別札所
ご本尊 阿弥陀如来

元旦より、観光客や家族の方が参拝に来てます。
ご朱印は仮の堂で受けてます。
ご朱印帳を出すと、護摩木を受け取り、願ごとを書き❴加持、祈祷❵護摩木を炊き上げ、一人一人に加持を受けました、有り難い事です。新年早々いい事が有りそうです。

国宝の阿弥陀堂で年内は釈迦三尊でお参りできます。
この大堂は天台宗の常行堂だと思われますが内部は極楽浄土を表した彩色がされていて平等院鳳凰堂などと共に三大阿弥陀堂とも呼ばれているそうです。藤原氏ゆかりの平等院鳳凰堂や中尊寺金色堂は別格なので肩を並べるとは思いませんが同タイプが多く存在したのではないかと思える完成度の御堂でした。福島県の国宝白山阿弥陀堂と同じで南向きで西方浄土では建っていませんでした。
