Ohara Imperial mausoleum Ohara Imperial mausoleum
Two emperors who tried to topple down the then Shogun Government were buried here. This place is controlled by the Imperial Household Agency; and therefore, nobody is permitted to go inside, but the area has been managed clean and provides the serenity.
Jikkoin Jikkoin
This is one of monasteries of Shorinin and has been used as the place where monks are given trainings of Tendai Buddhist Chants, or Shomyo. You enjoy Japanese tea and snack here with viewing gardens and instruments for chants.
Shorinin Shorinin
This has been the main seminary for the Buddhist monks as the place where they are given trainings of chanting. Temples we will visit are surrounded by two rivers that are called “RO” and “RITSU”. When our articulation is not good, Japanese express that “RO-RETSU ga mawaranai,” or “we cannot clear our articulation” from the names of those rivers.
