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.

2020.02.29記 ぼくは、もっともっと「富貴寺」のことを知って、勉強して訪れたらよかったなぁ~と思いました。これから「富貴寺」を訪れる方へ、すでにご存じと思いますが、2019年3月24日 - 大分合同新聞朝刊 16 ページに掲載きじですが「 国宝の大堂内では参拝者が阿弥陀如来の手と五色のひもを通じてつながることができる。境内には同じく阿弥陀如来に直接触れることと同じ功徳がある回向柱を立てている。」とのことです。知るか知らないかは大違いです。ぼくは知らなかった~また行くよ~行くぞ~「富貴寺」
2020.02 富貴寺に初めて訪れました。 約100年ぶり 国宝の富貴寺大堂では 阿陀三尊 御開帳。
本尊「阿弥陀如来坐像」に 脇侍の「観世音菩薩」「勢至菩薩」富貴寺大堂に遷座されておられました。
