united aMy #Japan #Tokyo Travel (Part 12) #Sensoji

When you said one of the most significant and Tokyo’s oldest temple, all of them would know that is Sensoji. Ya, visit Sensoji, an ancient Buddhist temple located in Tokyo’s cultural capital, Asakusa. The temple really founded during the Edo period and is dedicated to the Bodhisattva Kannon.

According to legend, a statue of the Kannon was found in the Sumida River in 628 by two fishermen, the brothers Hinokuma Hamanari and Hinokuma Takenari. The chief of their village, Hajino Nakamoto, recognized the sanctity of the statue and enshrined it by remodeling his own house into a small temple in Asakusa so that the villagers could worship Kannon. The first temple was completed in 645 CE and making it’s the oldest temple in Tokyo.

当你提起东京最重要及最古老的寺庙时,他们都会告知你就是浅草寺。对,参观位于东京文化首府浅草的古老佛教寺庙浅草寺。这个寺庙在江户时代建立的,并且供拜着菩萨观音。

据「浅草寺缘起」记载:推古天皇36年(公元628年),名叫桧前浜成(HINOKUMA HAMANARI)、竹成(TAKENARI)的两兄弟,在江户浦(下网捕鱼时,网得一尊佛像!乡绅土师真中知命(HAJINO NAKAMOTO)幸拜并得知这是一尊圣观世音菩萨像后,悟心觉醒倾心皈依,改建私宅为佛寺。第一座寺庙于公元645年建成,是东京最古老的寺庙。

首先,我们先步行穿过着名的雷门,雷门上悬挂一个大灯笼。在1865年雷门被烧毁、1960年约1世纪之后以钢筋混凝土再重建。门内置有实业家松下幸之助(松下電器创办人)于浅草观音祈愿之后病愈,作为报答而寄赠的大灯笼。

我们到达宝藏门(浅草寺的实际大门),一踏入宝藏门,你的视野就会看到本堂和五层塔。本堂及五层塔曾在战争中被摧毁,所以这两建筑物是重建的相对较新。

而本尊觀音像就供奉在本堂殿内。双手合十,静静的膜拜,他们相信观音会带走人们的痛苦及让人们愿望成真。
