Temple with rich of history

#thingstodo Isshin-ji, located in Osaka, Japan, is a Buddhist temple with a rich history dating back to its founding in 1185. Initially established as a Shingon sect temple, it later adopted Jodo Shinshu teachings, becoming a significant Pure Land Buddhism center. The temple underwent several relocations due to wars and fires before settling in its current location in 1868. Isshin-ji gained prominence in the 20th century under the leadership of Abbot Yamada Koun. Known for its unconventional and socially engaged approach to Buddhism, the temple actively addresses contemporary issues. Notable features include a massive wooden statue of Kannon, the goddess of mercy, and a collection of memorial tablets for deceased pets. Isshin-ji continues to be a spiritual and cultural hub, welcoming visitors seeking a unique blend of tradition and modernity.
