Fresh greenery of Metasequoia trees 2024.06.16 About 500 metasequoia trees are planted on the prefectural road Koaraji Makinozawa Line, which runs through the agricultural park Makinopic Land, for a length of about 2.4 km, forming a landscape typical of the Highlands as an approach road to the Makino Highlands. The beautiful scenery of the four seasons, such as the budding and fresh greenery of Spring, the deep green of summer, the Autumn leaves of autumn, and the bare trees and Snow Flower in winter, harmonizes with the mountains of the Nosaka Mountains, which are in the distance, and fascinates people who visit. In 1994 (Heisei 6), it was selected as one of the Yomiuri Shimbun's "New 100 Views of Japan Street Trees" and has attracted public attention.

Baekje Temple 2024.06.15 Baekje-ji Temple is one of the oldest Temple in Omi Province, founded by Prince Shotoku in the 14th year of Suko, more than 1400 years ago. A long time ago, when Prince Shotoku took inn at the foot of Mt. Tarobo in Yokkaichi, he saw Zuiko (Myoko) in the eastern mountains every evening. The next morning, the prince was mystified, and when he entered the mountains, he found a large tree with the upper half of its trunk cut off in the place of the light spring. Around this large tree, Mr./Ms.'s mountain monkey worships with fruit offerings. When the prince saw this scene, he felt that this great cedar tree was a sacred tree, and he was instructed to build a statue of the Bodhisattva Kanzenon with this large tree growing, and he put his first sword into it. This Kanzenon is called "Ueki Kannon" because it is a large tree with roots, and the trunk of the upper half becomes the "eleven-sided Kannon" enshrinement facing east at Yongunsa Temple in Baekje, and the west-facing "Ueki Kannon" faces each other to become "two Kannon-sama of the same tree".

Baekje Temple 2023.06.23 The fresh greenery was beautiful. It is located east of Lake Biwa and on the western slopes of the Suzuka Mountains. According to the temple legend, it was built in the 14th year of Emperor Suiko (606) by Prince Shotoku. When Prince Shotoku came to this place with the Goryeo monk Huiji, who was visiting at the time, he saw a mysterious light in the mountains. When I went to visit the source of the light, I found that it was a cedar tree. The prince carved the cedar as a standing tree with roots to make an eleven-sided Kannon statue (Ueki Kannon) and built a hall around the statue. This is said to be the beginning of Baekje Temple, and it is said that the temple was built after Yongunji Temple in Baekje, so it was named Baekje Temple.
