    A well-known temple in the Old Street of Bodo District, Fukuoka, known as the first monastery where Buddhism Secret Sect was introduced into Japan, is an important place of worship for Buddhism Secret Sect Sect, Immovable Ming King and Bodhisattva Buddha in Kyushu, Japan. It is also the tomb Temple of Fukuoka Bodhisattva's family in the shogunate era. At present, there are three generations of vassals buried. The scenery of Dongchang Temple in cherry blossom season or red leaf season is OK. Generally speaking, it is not a special scenic spot worth visiting.

    Tochoji Temple, Dongchang Temple, is near Zhiyuan. The subway takes a minute or two to reach Zhiyuan Station. Dongchang Temple is the main monastery of Jiuzhou Church of Zhenyan Zong. Its name is Nanyue Mountain. The Temple created by Master Hongfa is the oldest temple in Japan. It was originally located on the seashore, but later it was moved to its present position by Fukuoka Pan's second generation patriarch. On the second floor of the monastery, there is a treasured thousand-handed Guanyin Bodhisattva, up to 16 meters high. It is carved from a Arhat pine, which is imported from Taiwan. Behind the Buddha there is a passage to hell, which depicts various scenes of the underworld. And then the way to hell. Because it was very dark inside, I could only touch the wall on one side and move forward slowly. In the process, I felt very afraid. There are no photographs in the temple, only in the courtyard.

    You can see the subway just at Exit 1 of Yuanyuan Station. The main reason for coming here is to attend the Fukuoka Grand Barrel. The raw material is 50 yuan gold. The time is from 9:00 to 16:45. On the second floor of the Dabandian Treasure Museum, three incenses of a candle can be collected after payment. The lighted candle can be inserted on a special shelf, and then the incense of a candle can be lighted on its own candle and inserted on the side of the big incense stove. Daba is very solemn. There is a hell exit at the lower left. You can experience the endless darkness, be timid and be more careful to do bad things. Photography is forbidden in the Great Battle Hall.

    Dongchang Temple has a long history. It is said that it was founded by Empty Sea monks who sent to China in the Tang Dynasty in 806 days. The whole Dongchang Temple is small and simple in structure. When they come to the main hall of Dongchang Temple and look into the deep seclusion, they can see a thousand-handed Avalokitesvara, which is an important national cultural relic of Japan. Dongchang Temple also has the largest wood carving Buddha in Asia. There is a small door beside the Buddha statue which says "Hell Bliss". It goes into a small corridor which only allows one person to pass through. It goes along the corridor. The murals beside it tell the story of people's death.. After entering the Bliss World, it enters a dark path where nothing can be seen. It can only grope forward and winding carefully. Tortuous forward, until there is a glimmer of light ahead, suddenly open-minded. It's a wonderful feeling.

    Dongchang Temple is a more classical temple, but also one of the more famous relics in Japan. Its buildings are similar to those in China. There are also red buildings, especially the five-pylon, which are very beautiful.

    It's a good idea to pass by. There are almost no people in the scenic spots. They are clean and big. No tickets are needed. It's good.

    Dongchang Temple, traditionally built by Master Kong Hai (yeah, the monk who catches cats in the "demon cat turn"), has a thousand-handed Guanyin carved from Luo Hansong in the temple, which unfortunately hides it from viewing. There is also a six-track mural inscription. The exit is very interesting. It is an all-black spiral path. To touch the wall and come out, it may imply that only through darkness can light be touched.

    Dongchang Temple is not far from Boduo Station and can not be reached. Not too big. There is a big Buddha on the second floor. For 50 yen, you can take three incenses to worship Buddha. You can't take photos in the Buddhist hall. Behind the Buddha there is a simulated hell with five fingers missing. It's a little scary. We groped out that besides the Buddha statue, there were pictures showing the temple to restore history.

    Dongchang Temple covers a small area, but Dongchang Temple has the same shape as Qingshui Temple in Kyoto. In addition, the passageway under Sakyamuni is very meaningful and worth experiencing.
