Muroji, in the mountains of eastern Nara Prefecture, is a temple of the Shingon sect of Buddhism built in the 9th century. Unlike others Shingon temples, including the one headquartered at Koyasan, Muroji never excluded female worshippers, thus referred to as "Women's Koyasan". This area was considered a holy place, and when an emperor became ill in the 8th century, priests were sent here to pray for his recovery.

The complex has a number of national treasures and important cultural properties, including the wooden-shingled Kondo Hall that houses numerous wooden Buddhist statues. The 16m-high, five-story pagoda was severely damaged in the typhoon in 1998 but has been restored.

Muro-ji is buddhist temples it has origin of the 8th century. There is a bus line connect from Muro-ji-guti Ono station (Kintesu line) to this temple.
Location, it’s surrounded in silent valley and forest. The wooden temple and status are taken aging on flow of the time. Rusty and faded color with grace make us calm and have a great experience in all season. also if you know photographer Ken Domon , you’ll have more impression at this place.

This place was incredible at night. Seeing the lit autumn leaves in the freezing temps!

Spectacular colours here in Autumn. This buddhist temple setting is serene in a forest environment. Just a lovely spot. Including a helmet headed buddhist monk busking with a bamboo flute. 16th century style. The helmet was worn to manifest the absence of ego.

一番上まで上がる階段はとても大変ですので、足腰悪い方にはお勧め出来ませんが、頑張って一番上まで登りました。
一番上にしか置いていない販売物がありましたよ。
途中で、室生寺の宝物を見たりそれらのお話が聴ける時間があったりして、満足しました。
紅葉の時期に行けたらもっと良かったかもしれません。(時期外れに行ったので)

3~4回は、行った。2年ほど前に行ったのが、最終です。奥の院へ行って帰ってきたら、足首が痛くなりそれからは、参拝に行けていません。昨年の11月に県病院で診察してもらったら、足首の距骨が壊死していました。現在も、3ヶ月に一度レントゲンを撮るように指示されています。
