TOFUKUJI - Resplendent in Red
东福寺 红妆璀璨
동복사
紅の東福寺

Tofukuji Temple, the head temple of the Rinzai sect of Buddhism, was built in 1236.
At the main entrance is Sanmon Gate, designated a National Treasure. It is the largest one of its kind among Zen temples of Japan. The site is imbued with the solemnity of Buddhism. Nineteen statues of the Buddha grace the hall and the ceiling is adorned with the Kalavinka and Gumyo Bird, mythical creatures said to dwell in Buddhist paradise. The nearly 2000 maples trees along the temple grounds attest to the beauty of nature with its fresh green foliage in spring that eventually burst into the resplendent colors of fall. Three wooden bridges, Tsutenkyo, Gaunkyo, Engetsukyo span a stream surrounded by maple trees.
In all four directions of the Hojo or abbot’s quarters, the beautifully kept modern gardens convey expressions of contemporary art. Named collectively as Hasso-no-niwa (Garden of Eight Views), it was designed by Mirei Shigemori, the quintessential gardener of the Showa Era. In creating this garden, stones were brought from another location, in keeping with the Zen spirit of not letting anything go to waste. In autumn, the temple is dyed in the radiant hues of autumn. We are proud to present the breathtaking beauty of Tofukuji Temple in 4K super high-definition, the only way to do justice to the magical changing of the seasons woven by man and nature.

东福寺是佛教临济宗之总院,于1236年建造。主入口处是被指定为国宝的三门。它是日本禅寺同类中最大的一个。此处充溢着佛教庄严。十九尊佛像置于大堂,天花板饰有据说是安居于佛教极乐世界的神话动物——迦陵频伽及共命鸟。近两千棵枫树沿着寺庙庭院而立,春季新绿树叶尔后漫润秋季璀璨色彩,彰显自然之美。三座木桥——通天桥、卧云桥及偃月桥横跨枫树环绕的溪流。
方丈庭院的东西南北方向为秀丽的现代庭院,总称为八相之庭,展现当代艺术风韵。创建此庭院时,石料来自于此区其他场地,以契合勿要浪费的禅之精神。在秋季,明媚秋色尽染寺庙。我们荣幸地呈现东福寺令人心折的美丽,而这人与自然共同织就的季节的奇妙变化仅能通过4K超高清晰度得以尽致体现。
