自家用車で向かいましたが、ＪＲ「福光駅」から約３ｋｍのところにあります。 拝観料 500円 500年以上の歴史をもつ真宗寺院のお寺だそうですが、棟方志功や柳宗悦、河井寛次郎がたくさん展示され展示されていました。 棟方志功作の襖絵「華厳松」が有名ですが、他の作品も見ごたえあります。 スタッフの方の説明もあり良い時間が持てました。 more »It is located about 3km from JR Fukuhikari Station, which is a private car. Admission 500 yen It seems to be a temple of the Jodo temple with a history of 500 years or more, but there were exhibited a lot of Munakata Shiisao, Yanagi Muneyoshi, and Kawai Kanjiro. The Fusuma painting "Kegon" is famous for Munakata Shiki, but other works are also impressive. We had a good time with the staff.
