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.

One of my favorite temples in the Kunisaki area. There is a calmness that is unchanged by time.

平安時代に宇佐神宮大宮司の氏寺として開かれた由緒ある寺院で国宝に指定☝🏻富貴寺大堂は、宇治の平等院鳳凰堂、平泉の中尊寺金色堂と並ぶ日本三阿弥陀堂のひとつ。

堂内に収められた本尊の阿弥陀如来像も国重要文化財に指定されており、日本四壁画の一つとされる阿弥陀浄土変相図は、極楽浄土の世界を描いているとされていますが、風化により微かに色合いが見える程度でした。しかし、時を重ねた建物や仏像には、見えないパワーを感じました👍🏻
