Hualien Keishuin|Environmental Guide

When I come to Hualien, the weather is so good that I want to find a place to rest and hide from the sun. Keishuin is a good choice! Keishuin is almost a classic attraction that we must visit every time we come to Ji'an. Tickets are cheap and there is no time limit. It is suitable for adults and children. Although I have been here many times, I still feel very beautiful every time I go in, with an antique Japanese style, like flying to Japan to visit a shrine in seconds!

Keishuin was originally an overseas branch of the Shingon sect of Japanese Buddhism. It was the belief center of the Japanese who immigrated to the area at that time. After World War II, it was changed to worship Sakyamuni Buddha and Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva. It was nationalized by the government in 1997, but it still has the function of religion. It is also the best preserved Japanese temple monument in Taiwan.

▲ Japanese architecture with traditional wooden structure

The whole building is made of wood. You need slippers to step on the temple. You can't go inside. You can only watch it from the outside. You don't need to light incense. You can simply complete the worship according to the worship method on the sign.

▲How to visit the shrine

There are also many precious historical heritages preserved in the courtyard, some of which were obtained by the master when he traveled all over Japan and Shikoku.Eighty-eight Buddha statues, guarding the central positionFudo Mingwang, praying for a cureBright mantra a million times stone tablet, the cornerstone of the templeBaidu Stone.

▲There is a hand-water house for worshippers to wash their mouths with a ladle. Currently, it is not open for use due to the epidemic.

The park in the monastery is not big, and you can walk through it all at once. It is recommended to stay for about half an hour to an hour. In addition, there is also a Japanese yukata experience here. There is an unlimited time for 300 yuan, and there is a special dressing service, but the current epidemic situation is not open. If you want to take pictures, you have to add more time!

Although it is a religious tourist attraction, it is always full of people every holiday, and the heat is not reduced. Even if you are not a Buddhist tourist, it is highly recommended to walk in and feel the peaceful atmosphere in the park, a touch of coolness under the shade of greenery, and then set off after a rest!
