Tachibana-dera Temple TEL：0744-54-2026
West entrance is wheelchair accessible, east entrance is with stairs.
This temple is said to be one of the seven temples which Prince Shotoku Taishi built.
It boasted large-scale “Shitenno-ji style”arrangement of temple buildings. Based on the record of the fire, the temple is believed to have constructed before 680.
The temple’s power declined in the Muromachi period, and the buildings were destroyed several times by fires. The present buildings were built during the Edo period.
The stone foundation of a lost pagoda with a flower shaped pillar hole is a must-see spot in this temple.
The double-faced stone with each face representing good and evil should not be missed.
The painting titled “Kinehon-choshoku Shotoku Taishi E Den” done by Tosa Mitsunobu, which is designated as the important cultural property, is exhibited only during the special opening periods of Shoso-den Repository.
There are many other temple treasures.
