Only in the Spring of Kyoto ⑤ The mysterious well of Rokudochinno-ji Temple

In Kyoto, there are many mysterious spots that have history since the Heiankyo era.

One of them is Rokudochinno-ji Temple.

It is said to be located on the route to Toribeno, the eastern tomb of Heiankyo, and to stand on the border between the human world and the "The Six Paths".

In the precinct, there is a mysterious well that the poet Ono Takamura used to travel to and from the lower world.

From April 27 to May 6, there will be a temple treasure exhibition where you can see this well.

Also, during this period, there will be a limited golden stamp you can collect in your temple stamp book.

How about going out with an original book made near the temple, by "Tomita Kogei" shop?
