Rainy Day at Chozen-ji

Beautiful temple in Kofu with two pagodas

On a rainy August afternoon I set out on foot from Kofu JR Station to explore. After about ten minutes walk, I saw a temple pagoda rising above the trees and houses, and so I found Chozen-ji. This temple has not one, but two pagodas. The gate and bell tower were under reconstruction, and the five tier pagoda looked as if it had recently been reconstructed, but even with the mess of timber and machines and blue sheets Chozen-ji was a beautiful temple! It is also the top ranked of the five Kofu Gozan temples. Visit it on your way to Kai-Zenkoji!
