AKI MEGURIHISTORYTOKAIDOYAMATOSHIKOKU


 

Words-and-Pictures: Soujiji

(as seen on September 7th, 2001, on the Old Tokaido stage of the Aki Meguri)

Note: This magnificent temple is situated between Kawasaki and Kanagawa (modern Yokohama) in Kanagawa Prefecture, which are Stations #2 and 3 respectively (from Tokyo) on the Old Tokaido Highway.  You can read about my visit to Soujiji in my Logbook.  You may also choose to start reading about my Tokaido journey at the beginning, or start at the top of my Aki Meguri pages.
 

Soujiji's front gate is bigger than the hondo at Honsenji!
The gymnasium-sized office where my book was signed, and where the student's kindly made an amulet for my safety.

The Hondo (Main Hall), where I said my prayers.
The Butsuden, or Buddha Hall, where the adoration of the Buddha is practiced.
