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.

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

富貴寺的富貴大堂為九州現存最古老的木造建築,裡面的極樂淨土壁畫相當美麗,不過畢竟年代久遠有些損壞,可以去大分縣立歷史博物館看復原後的樣子。另外如果是楓紅季節去的話可以欣賞到美麗的楓葉

学生時代の卒業旅行で伺った以来の33年ぶり。懐かしくもありあらためて伺ってゆっくりと時間を過ごせました。素晴らしかったです。次回は秋にでも伺いたいとおもいます。
