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。

富貴寺は、中学生の頃に行きました。平安建築のひとつで、国宝指定されてます。本堂は阿弥陀如来、開基は仁聞と聞いてます。年に一度だったか?本堂の扉が開いて拝めたと記憶してます。気持ちが穏やかになります。又、熊野磨崖仏にも行かれてはどうですか?九十九段の石段を心清め上がって行くと、たどり着く事が出来ます。小さい頃は、鬼が積み上げた石段だと聞かされていました。是非一度訪れてはいかがでしょうか。
