  • It is a temple built as a gate to protect the east of Enryakuji temple from the Emperor Kanmu. A large lantern is hung on the gate, and there is an image of Fujin and thunder on both sides. This alone is different from ordinary temples. There are no features such as this in the precincts, but there is a chaise lounge where visitors can sit. It is a picture to drink tea here while seeing the autumn leaves.

  • The Higashimonin temple means to protect the east of Mt. Hiei, and this temple is also called "Moriyama-ji". Moriyama is said to protect Mt. Hiei in the sense that it protects the mountain. The main image is a statue of the eleven-sided Kanzeon-an, also known as Moriyama Kannon. This temple has a long history and a high style, but it also has many cultural properties, and the statue of Fudo Myo is said to be the largest statue in Shiga Prefecture with a half-length six. I also own a lot of heavy sentences. National treasures and heavy sentences are not national things, much less temples...

  • I found it by chance and visited a shrine. I didn't know there was such a wonderful temple. Mr. Niwang is also wonderful!

  • I visited there early in the morning. If you go by car, there are only three stops in the worship parking lot on the right of the main gate, but there is a temporary parking lot. We recommend that you go to a beautiful time. In addition, because it is said to the east gate of Moriyama in the temple to protect the eastern mountains of Mount Hiei, there is an atmosphere when it is sightseeing in the set with Mount Hiei
