Cool Japan / The Native Place Tour of The Tale of Genji / Vol. 36


(View of the sacred Mount Hiei from Kuramadera.)

This time introduce "Mount Hiei and Enryaku-ji Temple".
Mount Hiei (Hiei-zan) guards the northeastern approach to Kyoto.
The sacred mountain and its remote Yokawa precinct are mentioned in the Uji chapters of The Tale of Genji.
On the 49th day after Yugao's death, Genji sponsors a reading of the Lotus Sutra for her at the Hokke-do in the Saito, or west precinct.

The Toto, or east precinct, contains the Konpon Chudo, Amida Hall and Kaidan-in - the formerly much-prized ordination platform.
The three precincts make up the sprawling monastic complex of Enryaku-ji Temple.
Founded by Saicho in the late eighth century, Enryaku-ji had at its peak about 3,000 buildings and an army of warrior monks.
But the temple's power posed a threat to warlord Oda Nobunaga, who razed it to the ground and slaughtered all the monks in 1571.
