Warabe-jizo (Statues of Bodhisattva Who Look Like Children) at Sanzen-in Temple

The most famous place in the Ohara (大原) district in Kyoto is Sanzen-in (三千院) temple.

The Sanzen-in temple, founded in the Heian (平安) period, has a deep historical connection with the imperial court and emperors, and is regarded as one of the high ranked temples in Japan.

The temple, also very famous for its autumn foliage, is currently having the best time to see fresh greenery of mosses and young maple leaves. On the premises, the garden called Yuseien (有清園) at which the main hall is located, is now covered with green carpet of moss. The view of cedar trees and moss after the rain, will make you feel being in the shower of fresh negative ion.

There is one more attraction in the garden. Warabe-jizo (わらべ地蔵, statues of bodhisattva who look like children) are welcoming visitors with their soothing smiles. If you are to seek a peace of mind, please come visit this temple during this greenery season.
