The oldest Zen temple in Kyoto, Japan, the meditation of the dry landscape, the Japanese garden maple leaf red fire
Jianren Temple is located in the core of the garden, surrounded by the two most famous streets, Huajian Road and Baguatong. It has also become a tourist attraction that many tourists come to visit in Gion. Jianren Temple was built in the second year of Jianren (1202) in the Kamakura period. It was founded by the Zen master of Japan, the originator of Zen, and is the oldest Zen temple in Kyoto.
There is a ticket inside the Jianren Temple. The entrance has a walking route map. The essence of the temple is here. The 500 yen ticket still feels worthwhile. There are no gorgeous decorations here. The first step into the Daxiong Court is deeply attracted to us by its simple Japanese architecture and thought-provoking dry landscape.
The most famous temple in the temple is the painting on the ceiling of the Fatang: Ssangyong. This is the 800th anniversary of the founding of the temple in 2002. It was created by the Japanese painter Koizumi, and covered the dome of the entire temple. Looking up, as the two dragons face each other.

Jianren Temple, known as "Long", is known as "Zen"
Jianren Temple is at the end of the flower-like path of tourists, it can be said that "the big hidden in the city", as soon as the temple is like the outside world The cockroach was instantly isolated. The temple is huge in size and consists of several courtyards. The architectural style here is completely different from that of the Kiyomizu-dera Temple. The temple is built to imitate the Baizhang Mountain in China and is an ancient temple that has been in existence for 800 years. The overall style of painting is very uniform, the plain wall logs, no powder, and the cleanliness of the net.
In the main entrance of the workshop, there is a screen with four Chinese characters - "big heart". Jianren Temple was founded by the Rongxi Zen Master. It is said that Takahashi Ryosuke introduced Zen to Japan after four years of practice in China, and brought the tea culture to Japan. It can be said that Zen and tea ceremony were the first birthplaces from China to Japan. Zeng Qiyi, a Xiong Zongchun (a Chinese-known one), also practiced in this monastery. A major selling point of the
Jianren Temple is the Fengshen Leishen screen, and a picture of Yunlong, which is painted on the wall of the abbot's lobby. The whole temple is also designed around the two. The Aeolus Raytheon (Replica) is a national treasure. There are no signatures and seals in this picture, but it is regarded as the true expression of the Zongda Zongda and is the most classic masterpiece of his later years. The entire surface of the two-fold screen is covered with gold foil, the right half depicts Fengshen, and the left half depicts Raytheon. There are also several courtyards behind the
abbot's courtyard, all known for their mosses, and there is also a typical tea room. All of these courtyards are connected to each other, and all the rooms are also open for viewing. This is very rare in Japanese monasteries, and there is an indescribable atmosphere. Japanese-style mats and background paintings make you feel like you are in a movie scene. Although it was the only one in the audience to wear Chinese clothes, it also felt that Hanfu and the Zen-like courtyard were incomparable.
About the abbot lobby is a large-scale dry mountain garden, sitting on the edge of the corridor, with the back of the temple building as the background, dotted with ancient cypress pine, the white sand like the sea, surrounded by several steep seas The mountains and stones - without the numerous tourists around, the dry landscape garden seems to have finally recovered its demeanor. Because of its extreme abstraction, it can be transformed into everything, and its vastness is like a glimpse of the universe.
Along the Huajian path, you will reach the end of the Jianren Temple. As the oldest Zen temple in Kyoto, it is located in the noisy fireworks and willows of the Gion, but it contains the history and Zen of Kyoto for 800 years. Elegant, natural and simple, take off your shoes, buy tickets, enter the temple, take pictures, put on a kimono and step into it, one tree, one flower and one corner, all of them are self-contained;
