Access to Enjoji

Enjo-ji Temple is a Tendai sect temple located in Enjo, Kibichuo-cho, Kaga-gun, almost in the center of Okayama Prefecture. Although it is located in the countryside, there are many visitors from inside and outside the prefecture, including Bizen, Bicchu, and Mimasaka. (Tourist information for Kibichuo Town can be found here here, and Enjoji Temple is located within Enjo Furusato Village.)
 The photo on the top page is the Sanmon Gate. Ni-o-sama is guarding the left and right sides, but you are basically free to enter and exit the precincts.

 The name of the mountain is Hongusan, the name of the temple-in is Kannon-in, and the name of the temple is Enjo-ji. It is said to have been founded by Gyoki Bosatsu, who was involved in the construction of the Great Buddha of Todai-ji Temple, and in 2015 it celebrated its 1300th anniversary.
 Chinjudaiba Shrine is enshrined here, making it a syncretism of Shinto and Buddhism.

 In addition to Hatsugoma, Nirvana Ceremony, Spring and Autumn Higan Eko, Flower Festival, Daiba Shrine Spring and Autumn Festivals, and Segaki Ceremony, there are also sutra copying sessions, zazen sessions, lectures, and more, all of which are open to the public.
Please feel free to join us. There are resorts nearby such as Komori Onsen and Yunose Onsen. You can also take a break and have a snack at the nearby roadside station Kamogawa Enjo. You can also buy fresh and delicious vegetables directly from farmers at extremely low prices.
