Senyo-ji, aka Chiba-dera, is a Shingon sect Buddhist temple in Chiba City, Chiba Prefecture. According to the legend, its origin dates back in AD 709, when Gyoki, a famous Buddhist priest of the Nara Period, visited this place and enshrined the statue of Juichimen-Kannon (Eleven-faced Kannon Bodhisattva) following a revelation in his dream, and Emperor Shomu then ordered the construction of a temple on the site and named it Senyo-ji. The tall ginkgo tree standing in front of the Hondo (main hall), which is more than 30 meters (98 feet) in height and 8 meters (26 feet) in circumference, is said to be around 1,000 years old.

When I was a child, I came every time I visited my grandparents' house, but this time, I probably visited Chibaji for about 36 years. An image that is even larger than when you saw it as a child. I want you to be very respectable and keep it in the local community.
When his deceased father was a child (around the age of three), he often said that it was shocking that the people who had died in the air raid had been piled up next to the ginkgo and burned. My grandfather often told me that Chiba City from Chiba-ji was a sea of ​​fire. So when I was a kid, I was a little scared of Chiba-ji. I think it's a valuable story, so I'll leave it here.
By the way, I like the painter Ichimura Tanaka, but I lived in Chiba-ji a long time ago. My grandmother lived with a painter's uncle, and when I was a kid I was listening, but it was really Tanaka Ichimura.
I wish I had heard more about my grandparents and my father.
