Kongo Fudo 金剛不動尊
古峯ヶ原 Furuminegahara 金剛山 Kongozan 瑞峯寺 Zuiho-Ji


栃木県鹿沼市草久2239 / Tochigi, Kanuma city, Kusagyu

The temple was founded in 757 by 勝道上人 Saint Shodo Shonin.
勝道上人 Priest Saint Shodo Shonin (735 - 817) practised Shugendo rituals in Nikko and helped deepen the belief in the Tengu, who would protect people from misfortune and extinguish fires in the region.
. 勝道上人 Saint Shodo Shonin .

今から凡そ1250年前、聖武天皇の御代、天平宝字元年(757年)に、日光山を開いた勝道上人(しょうどうしょうにん)によって当山奥之院三昧石(三枚石)が開創されました。 御年二十三歳の時であります。下野の名刹出流山(いずるさん)より奥之院にきた時に、峯に古色蒼然とした広大な原野があるので、古峯原(こぶがはら)と名づけられました。一説には華供(はなく)の峯が供峯(くぶ)になり古峯(こぶ)になったともいわれています。 金剛山という名称は、弘法大師が上人の遺弟道珍法師に金剛界の大法を授けた説と、建武年間(1234―1235)に後醍醐天皇の勅願によって大和の国(奈良県)葛城別当賢道(けんどう)僧正によって、葛城金剛山の分霊を奉じて本尊金剛童子を祭った説があります。 中古以来日光山発展と共に古峯原も峯修行に多くの修行者来山し、興隆してまいりましたが、明治初年の神仏分離令による政体の変更、大正8年の大洪水による本堂並びに庫裡、客殿の流出等、諸般の事情により、当山も一時哀徴の一途をたどりましたが、先師の努力により、霊域も回復、有縁の浄地を現在地に求めて、堂宇を建立、法燈を護持して今日に至っております。

Umezawa Fudo 梅沢不動
梅沢山 Umezawazan 金蔵院 Kinzo-In 華蔵寺 Kezo-Ji
umezawa - lit. swamp of plum trees


栃木県栃木市梅沢町801 / Tochigi city, Umezawa town 801

The temple is surrounded by plum trees.

It was founded in 1202 by 佐野安房守実綱 Sano Sanetsuna, Lord of 唐沢城主 Karasawa castle.
Sanetsuna was a retainer of 源頼朝 Minamoto no Yoritomo. He built this temple in honor of Yoritomo.





- quote
... ある日、実綱は唐沢山城から小曽戸板を通り不摩城へ向う途中、寺尾郷が一望できる頂で馬をとめ眼下を眺めていた。 その時実綱は、過ぎし日鎌倉八幡宮で行われた流鏑馬(やぶさめ)に参加しその技量を讃えられ、政子夫人より紅梅一枝をおくられたことを思いおこし、 「先の将軍の冥福を祈るための寺は、この山に建てよう」と決意。
その夜、不摩城に入った実綱は、城主木村氏に梅沢の地に寺を建立するよう命令。
木村氏は、梅沢村三竹に宗綱の名で寺を建立し、梅南に隣接している地なので紅白の梅を境内に植えた。
その後三百年を経て、
一時廃塔されたが、大永三年(1523)に郷内戸矢子の不摩城主木村伊豆守により塔頭が再建された。
天正年間には、法印周応和上が醍醐より法流を相承して中興第一世となる。この時、門末十ヶ寺の中本寺となった。
第二世弘典法師は、
日光大沢で徳川二代将軍秀忠の帰依(きえ)を得て、石高十石の朱印地をもらい受けた。この時の書状箱は、華蔵寺に現存している。
しかし文政十一年(1828)、山火事により廃虚と化す。幾度かの復興を試みたが成功せず、明治維新を迎えた頃、遂に末寺常徳、持宝の二ヶ寺を残して末門はことごとく廃寺となった。
明治37年、
金剛照浄和上が第三十五世となり、常徳、持宝の二ヶ寺を合併し興隆を画す。昭和9年には、本堂と庫裏を再建した。 まさに華蔵寺の歴史は波乱に満ちている。
そうした時の流れを大らかなこころで包んだかのような、ここ華蔵寺の境内は静寂のみが音を立てる。
現実を離れ、遠い昔に旅をしている気分さえ味わえる、風格のある寺だ。

Karasawa Castle (唐沢城, Karasawa-jō) or
Karasawayama Castle (唐沢山城, Karasawayama-jō)
was originally built in 927 by Fujiwara no Hidesato, and Renovated in 1491 by Sano Moritsuna, of the Sano clan. It was a mountain-top castle, and one of the main castles of the Kanto area, Honshu, Japan. It is sited on the border of Kanto plain and northern mountain areas. and sat next to Sano, the corresponding castle town during the Edo period.
Over a period of time,
the Sano clan expanded their control over the area, and gradually built up the castle. At its peak, it was a substantial castle, commanding a mountaintop position. During the 16th century, the powerful Warlord, Kenshin Uesugi (1530–1578), lord of Kasugayama Castle moved into the area, and took over landholdings of some of the smaller clans. However, in so doing, he had to travel quite far, and was also being attacked by the Hojo clan. The castle saw most conflict in this period. Under the leadership of Sano Masatsuna (1529–1574), the castle withstood attacks by Kenshin Uesugi. At one point, Masatsuna allied with Kenshin, but eventually he broke free, regaining independence for the castle and for the Sano clan. The Uesugi clan attacked the castle 10 times during the Sengoku Period - a large amount of castle attacks, in a short time period.
Toyotomi Hideyoshi
conducted a campaign against the Hojo clan, and the Sano supported Hideyoshi. At the time, the Sano were on good terms with the Hojo, but Hideyoshi removed them from the castle. At the battle of Sekigahara the Sano clan sided with Tokugawa.
The story goes
that after one of the early Fires in Edo, the Sano clan could see the fire down in the city from their mountaintop. The clan sent their condolences to Edo for the unfortunate event. Allegedly, the Emperor was unimpressed that the Sano clan castle look down on Edo, and told them they would have to remove it. Whatever the reason, the clan rebuilt their castle lower down the hill, in a nearby but different position,
and this new castle was named Sano Castle.

This temple was build in 1061 by 頼空上人 Saint Raiku and later under the protection of the Nitta daimyo family. In 1333 under the protection of Godaigo Tenno it became a "Temple with seven important buildings" and 12 housings for monks.

The present Fudo Hall was constructed in 1705. The building on the leading road has two stories and is called Niten-Mon 二天門.

The small Fudo Tabernacle contains two statues of Fudo. One is about 5.5 cm high and made from "Enbudagon 閻浮檀金 (noble gold)", a special gold with a redish shine from the "Enbuda Forest" and was made in 1333 for the Nitta family.
It is called "Nitta Fure Fudo Son" 新田触不動尊.

The other statue is about 76 cm high and made from wood.It was carved in one night, the Fudo revealing himself in the statue, Miei Fudo Myo-O 御影不動明王 and has no flaming halo in the back.

The main hall of the temple houses another statue of Fudo Myo-O 倶利伽藍不動明王, also a protector deity of the Nitta family.

In 1794 a memorial stone for Matsuo Basho was built and later more material about 21 haiku poets with relations to Ojima Village was collected.

Myouou-in (Myouou Temple)
inside of this temple are two statues of gods. One of them is known as Nitta Fure Fudo, a god believed to have transformed himself to be a Buddhist monk and who informed the Nitta clan of Yoshisada's attack to destroy the Kamakura government. This statue is about 5.5 centimeters tall and made of platinum. In the precincts of the temple stands a very rare tower called Sentai-fudoson that is shaped like a pyramid. It was founded in the Edo Era.
