Ninna-ji Temple

Founded in 888 by the 59th Emperor Uda, Ninna-ji Temple has had imperial sons and grandsons serving as its chief priests for the past 1,000 years. The temple was a place where aristocrats and famous poets gathered and often held waka poetry festivals, forming a large salon that came to be known as the Ninna-ji Temple Culture.The Shorin-an, a former house that was moved to the grounds of the historic Ninna-ji Temple, is used as a lodging facility, where visitors can experience the special court culture of gagaku and bugaku, waka poetry, sutra copying, shuho, and juni-hitoe (12-layered kimono).
To realize sustainable protection and repair of Ninna-ji Temple, Ninna-ji Temple will explore the potential of bringing together the world of Buddhism and the world of TemDAO.
