Entoku-in Temple is located in the Higashiyama District of Kyoto City. It is one of Kyoto's scenic spots. It is a secret place where you can enjoy cherry blossoms in spring and maple in autumn. Night tour is especially recommended, and you will see another style of stunning at night.
The story of Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Ning Ning is always talked about by people. In the movie "Suqing Meeting," it magnifies the great help that Hideyoshi can dominate the world and Ning Ning contributed. Toyotomi Hideyoshi didn't match Ning Ning very well regardless of his birth or appearance, plus his fame, but Ning Ning not only gave birth to his children, but also supported his husband and son to win the world throughout his life. Even after Hideyoshi's death, Ning Ning left Osaka Castle and came to Kyoto. In 1606, to pray for the good fortune of his deceased husband, he built "Kodaiji Temple" in 1606.
In normal times, many important cultural relics in the Caotai Temple are not open, so you can only pay homage from the outside and observe its tranquil beauty. But now Entoku-in Temple is open for a limited time during the New Year, so friends who have time should not miss it.
When Kaodai Temple is down, Entokuin Temple is on the opposite side of Ningnyeong Road. It is the place where Beizheng lived and actually took power after the death of Toyotomi Hideyoshi. Compared with the Gaotai Temple, the taste here is better, some of the paintings inside, the layout is more delicate, and it looks like a very comfortable place to live. Japanese courtyards are very particular about the layout. It must be beautiful from one angle, but not so beautiful from other angles. This small courtyard, if you can see it from the opposite table, must be very beautiful, but it's a pity that you won't let it pass. This is the first place I encountered that used the white sandstone in the dry mountain water to completely simulate the flowing water. It surrounded the residence with white sandstone, as if surrounded by water. In addition, this is the first place to walk through with shoes, because The entrance and the exit are not in the same place, and beyond the exit is a green path leading to the Shiyuan path.
Entoku-in Temple is located on the small road to the Gaodai Temple, but the humble gate has a lot of origin. This is the place where Toyotomi Hideyoshi's wife Kitamasuo Ningning, one of the three masters of Japan's Sengoku period, lived for the last nineteen years after Toyotomi Hideyoshi's death. Ningning is also known as one of the three ladies of the Warring States Period.
The temple next to Kodai-ji Temple can be reached directly by the Shiping Path. The establishment of the temple may be related to Toyotomi Hideyoshi's wife. Quietness is the common point of small temples. The dry landscape in the front hall and the revolving landscape in the back hall are worth watching. It also provides free meditation experience, copying scriptures, making landscape models, and completing the whole process can have a pretty cute certificate.
