KonkaiKomyo-ji/金戒光明寺 is one of the biggest Jo-do shu temple in Kyoto, the site is also huge along mountain area. The reasons of location etc, this temple was used for the base of guard of Kyoto in Edo period by Tokugawa Bakuhu/徳川幕府 because the end of Edo period, crimes like murder and robbing had been spread in Kyoto. At the base, Shinsengumi/新撰組 was there as solders of Aizu Clan/会津藩 couldn’t save enough. The solders of Aizu Han tombs can be visited.

„Afro“ buddha is famous about the hair style! The actual name is „Gokosyui Amidabutsu/五劫思惟阿弥陀仏“. After he thought deeply and trained long time, his hair grew up very long. So that’s why he has Afro hair.
