Koushouji Betsuin Temple (Tondabayashi Gobo)

Koushouji Betsuin Temple is a temple of Jodo Shinshu School (Ikkoushuu School), which became the center of the development and establishment of Jinaimachi town in Tondabayashi . It has been popular as Mr. Gobo (Tondabayashi Gobo) among the local residents.

During the Ouei period (1394-1412years) , theincipient temple was opened in Ebitani village. In 1560, Shoushuu Shonin, the 16th head priest of Koushouji Sect. in Kyoto dismantled the building and reconstructedit to the present location, adjacent to Ebitani village.

The temple gate looks toward the east and the Jyounomon-suji street. Those buildings such as the bell tower, the drum tower, the main hall, the reception hall and priest's quarters are set up and arranged.

The main gate has refined style and it became clear in a recent investigation that the gate was further relocated from Koushouji temple in Kyoto, which was originally said to be dismantled and reconstructed from one of the gates at Fushimi castle in Kyoto.

Koushouji Betsuin Temple was designated as an important cultural property of the country in 2014.


The former residence of the Sugiyama family, an important cultural property of the country

The former Sugiyama family residence is the oldest building among those merchants’ houses in Jinaimachi and it is the remains of a large merchant house of the mid-Edo period.

The residence is the birthplace of Ms. Tsuyuko Isonokami, a female poet of Myojo school (Her autonym was Takako Sugiyama, 1882ー1959).

Though the old family business was not clear, it made ​​a significant development as a sake brewery, after acquiring the brewing license in 1785. The amount of sake production in 1785 reached 2,135 koku, the largest among breweries in Kawachi region.

Remark:
1 koku is an old unit equivalent to 150kgs or 180 litter of rice for brewing, which is corresponded to the assumed yearly consumption of rice per adult.

In 1792, Sadoya of the Nakamura family was promoted to be the chief director ofbrewing industry that shipped out to the Edo market in Kawachi region. The products of Sadoya was dedicated to the Tokugawa Shogunate in Edo.
