History of Tofukuji 东福寺历史

In 1236, Tofuku-ji was founded by the imperial chancellor Kujo Michiie. This Buddhist temple in Higashiyamaku in Kyoto Japan was rebuilt in the 15th century after it was destroyed by fire. In fact, Tofuku-ji was one of the five temples of the Five Mountain System (Kyoto Gozan or "five great Zen temples of Kyoto"). It takes its name from two temples in Nara, Todai-ji and Kofuku-ji.

1236年,东福寺由帝国总理九条道家创立。这座位于日本京都东日本的佛教寺庙在被火烧毁后于15世纪重建。事实上,东福寺是五山系统(京都五山或“京都五大禅寺”)的五个寺庙之一。它的名字来自奈良,东大寺和兴福寺的两座寺庙。

Tofuku-Ji is well known for the following:

东福寺因以下方面而闻名:

1) The Tofuku-ji complex includes 24 sub-temples. The two best are, IMHO, Ryogin-an and Funda-in. Its main gate, being the oldest sanmon in Japan, is a National Treasure of Japan.

1)东福寺综合体包括24个子寺庙。两个最好的是,恕我直言,良金庵、Funda-in。它的主要门是日本最古老的三门,是日本的国宝。

2) Famous for its well-landscaped gardens, the moss garden in particular has been symbolic of the renewal of Japanese gardening principles in the 20th Century.

2)以其美丽的园景花园而闻名,特别是苔藓花园象征着20世纪日本园艺原则的更新。

3) Tofuku-Ji is most popular during the Autumn season as the abundant Japanese Maple trees there undergo autumn foliage. Traditionally, the Tsuten-kyo bridge, a long wooden bridge that overlooks a valley covered by a grove of maple trees, becomes a prominent tourist attraction.

3)东福寺在秋季最受欢迎,因为丰富的日本枫树在那里经历秋叶。传统上,通天桥是一座长长的木桥,俯瞰着被枫树林覆盖的山谷,成为一个着名的旅游景点。

4) The largest Nehan-zu painting (Buddha on his death bed) in Japan can be found at the nearby Sennyu-ji area.

4)日本最大的Nehan-zu绘画(死亡之日的佛像)可以在附近的泉涌寺地区找到。
