Kennin-ji (建仁寺), is a historic Zen Buddhist temple in HigashiyamaKyotoJapan, near Gion, at the end of Hanami Lane. It is considered to be one of the so-called Kyoto Gozan or “five most important Zen temples of Kyoto”

Kennin-ji was founded in 1202 CE and claims to be the oldest Zen temple in Kyoto.
The monk Eisai, credited with introducing Zen to Japan, served as Kennin-ji’s founding abbot and is buried on the temple grounds. For its first years the temple combined ZenTendai, and Shingonpractices, but it became a purely Zen institution under the eleventh abbot, Lanxi Daolong (蘭渓道隆Rankei Dōryū) (1213–1278).
The Zen master Dōgen, later founder of the Japanese Sōtō sect, trained at Kennin-ji. It is one of the Rinzai sect’s headquarter temples.

See you じゃあね、また♪
