Kanjizaio-in Ruins

観自在王院跡(平泉町)

( Special historic site; special place of scenic beauty )
This is Kanjizaio-in Ato, which once stood east of Motsu-ji Temple. Like Motsu-ji, it is an excellent example of a Pure Land garden. Kanjizaio-in is said to have been commissioned by the wife of Motohira, the second lord of the Fujiwara clan, under whom the peaceful Golden Culture blossomed in present-day southern Iwate. Unfortunately, it was lost to a fire in 1573, but the worship hall and one of the two Amida Halls, as well as Maizuru ga Ike ( Dancing Crane Pond ) , have been restored. Today, it is a serene historic site park, perfect for a walk or relaxation.
