  • The other day, I went to Itsukushima Shrine, Kiyomori Shrine, and Daiganji Temple. The location is right in front of you at the exit of the route for visiting Itsukushima Shrine. I was surprised at the very rare pine (Kumotomatsu) though it became the appearance that it had been caught by a colorful flag fingering. Benten-sama seems to be enshrined, so I pray for the fulfillment of the art of the grandchildren.

  • There are 9 pine trees that are said to be hand-planted by Hirofumi Ito in the garden of the Daiganji precincts. This black pine is a very rare black pine with one tree divided into nine from the root, and it is tall, and it was very splendid, and it was good that it was worth seeing. In addition, the statue of Benzaiten, which was transferred from the main shrine of Itsukushima Shrine by the Shinto-Buddhist Separation Order, will be opened for one day in one year. It is opened at the Itsukushima Benzaiten Grand Festival on June 17 every year, so I'd like to see it. It is one of Japan's three largest benzaites, along with Enoshima Island in Sagami Province (Kamakura) and Takeo Island in Omi Province (Lake Biwa). It was good that there were many other attractions such as Niomon.

  • Essential visit if you come to the island. Would be better when the tide is in but oh well.
  • A rather unassuming temple (especially seeing as it's placed right next door to one of the most incredible shrines). There's a monk who chants and beats a drum at certain times in the day, which is rather nice to listen to.
