Koshoji Temple

Go up Kotozaka, covered with maple trees, and visit Koshoji Temple in Uji.

A famous temple of Soto Zen Buddhism, known for Kotozaka on the approach to the temple, which is lined with old trees in autumn colors on both sides of the gentle uphill slope. In the Kamakura period, Dogen Zenji opened it in Fukakusa, but it was abolished due to the war, and was rebuilt in Uji by Naomasa Nagai, the lord of Yodo Castle. The main hall is the remains of Fushimi Castle, and houses a wooden standing statue of Sho Kannon from the middle of the Heian period.
