Daisen-ji Amida-do

Daisen-ji’s oldest extant temple.

Amida-do was built in the closing years of the Muromachi era, and retains the lovely form of arching eaves protruding from a shingled roof. The principal object of worship is a 2.70-metre-tall wooden statue of Amitabha Buddha said to have been constructed in 1131. Both the building and the buddha are registered Important Cultural Properties. Entrance requires a reservation and fee. Periods of zazen are available by reservation, followed by a talk by the head priest and a period of accretion in the stillness of nature.
