Travel Guide - Torin-in Temple (Sarasoju-no-Tera)

InformationInformation

Torin-in Temple is a sub-complex of Myoshin-ji Temple. The temple was established in 1531 by the last Kanrei (Shogun's deputy) of the Muromachi Shogunate, Hosokawa Ujitsuna to console the spirit of his adoptive father, Hosokawa Takakuni.
Torin-in Temple is also known as "Sarasoju-no-Tera (Sal Tree Temple)" because of the Sal trees, including the famous 300-year old tree, in the temple grounds. An event called "Admiration of Sal tree flowers" is held every June to celebrate the Sal trees and its flowers.
The temple is generally open to the public only on special occasions, but is open year-round for Shukubo (Monastery lodging) or Shojin-ryori (Devotional vegetarian cuisine) guests. *Call 075-463-1334 for the details.

@WinterNorith 'I need you,' Torin repeats, either agreeing or committing it to memory. Probably both. 'What did you find at the temple?'
