Sanjusangen-do in Kyoto

2011.01.19

I visited my grand mother in Kyoto again.
It was lovely weather and I saw beautiful Mt.Fuji from the Bullet train,however,everything was covered with snow between Nagoya to Kyoto and it’s very cold when I arrived at Kyoto.
There were only two days with an overnight stay there so I spent almost time beside her.
However, I also did some sightseeing this time.

Few days ago,one of our guests told me that he was really impressed with Sanjusangen-do which was a holy building famous for its the 1000 standing images of Kannon. I saw that almost ten years ago and got to want to see them again by his talk.
Before taking Bullet train going back to Tokyo,I visited there with my cousin. It was wonderful and I was overwhelmed by it’s impact. I prayed for the recovery of my grand mother.

After that,I also went to lovely doughnut shop which was recommended by the guest as well and had coffee with my cousin. It was very pleasant time : ) Thanks,Yuri.

京都の祖母のお見舞いに行ってきました。
今回はお見舞いプラス、少し京都観光もすることができました。
数日前に行燈に宿泊していたゲストがとてもとても熱く「三十三間堂」の素晴らしさを語っているのを
耳にし、中学校の修学旅行振りに行ってみることにしました。

大正解です。ものすごい迫力とインパクトに圧倒されました。微妙に違うそれぞれのお顔を拝見しながら1000体の観音様を眺めて進んでいくといつの間にかかなり長い時間が経っていました。

堂内で参拝している人はあまり多くはなかったのですが、出口に差し掛かった時とてもたくさんの人と対面したような不思議な感覚が残りました。
そのあと、こちらも三十三間堂とともにゲストが勧めてくれた「はなドーナッツ」というお店で可愛いドーナッツをお土産に買って、今回のプチ京都観光に付き合ってくれた従妹と一緒にケーキとコーヒーでお茶をして楽しいひと時を過ごしました。ゆりちゃん、ありがとう。
