If you are traveling in the Tohoku region of Japan (Northeastern Honshu), why not go to Chusonji Temple, which is a World Heritage site, in Hiraizumi City, Iwate Prefecture. About 1000 years ago, the Tohoku region had a powerful armed government that was almost independent of the Imperial Court in Kyoto. Fujiwara, the lord of the time when the Tohoku region was almost unified after many terrible wars, built Chusonji Temple to pray for peace in the region. Inside the building seen on this photo above is the golden hall of the time. Please heal your mind and body in the quiet atmosphere of Chusonji Temple.
