Story & Recommendation
A moment of calm at a Zen temple deeply linked to the Sengoku warlords
The usually closed Daitoku-ji Oubai-in Temple will hold a special opening this autumn! Oubai-in is a sub-temple of Daitoku-ji, the main temple of the Daitoku-ji faction of the Rinzai sect of Buddhism. When Oda Nobunaga, a warlord active during the Sengoku period, visited Kyoto for the first time, he began building a small hermitage, called "Oubai-an" for his father. After the death of Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, a retainer of the Nobunaga family, gradually expanded the hermitage and made it into the “Oubai-in” temple. At this special opening, the “Jikichutei” garden created by the tea master, Sen no Rikyū, who was active at the same time as Oda Nobunaga and Toyotomi Hideyoshi, and the oldest existing Kuri (monk's living quarters and kitchen) of all Zen temples, will be open to the public.
