About Manshuin Monzeki
Manshuin Monzeki is a temple in Ichijoji, Sakyo-ku, Kyoto. Monzeki means that the people of the Imperial clan was the chief priest.
In enryakuji years (728-806), founder Dengyo Daishi Saicho founded a temple in the ground of Hiei as a dojo of spiritual protection of the state, and it is the beginning of the Manshuin.
As for the building, the design which was common with Katsura Rikyu in the nail hider, the puller, and transom etc. of the Shoin was seen, and it was made from the studio of the same series, and Manshuin is said to be “small Katsura Rikyu” by these.
Manshuin Monzeki is geographically located in the back of Ichijoji, and this time I lost my way. And, the photograph of the inside of the building was prohibited at the time of taking a picture, and it was not possible to photograph the barrier drawing, the small shoin (important cultural property), and the room of Fuji. But I was able to enjoy the garden of Karesansui, which is designated as a scenic garden.
Manshuin Monzeki is also known as a beautiful temple with autumnal leaves, and if you visit at the peak of autumn leaves, you will be able to appreciate the beautiful figure. The season of autumn leaves is usually from mid-November to late.
