I ran to Eikan-do temple near Nanzenji temple at Higashiyama in Kyoto. Eikan-do was built in 863 by priest Honen. THis temple is covered by many red leaves’ trees, so we can enjoy its beautiful scene in fall. The other treasure of this temple is the Amitabha Buddha’s statue that has been called “Mikaeri Amida” (lit. turning-around-Amitabha Buddha). In the legend, while monk Yokan was praying of Nembutsu walk in 1082, he noticed Amitabha Buddha was also walking before him, and looked back and said to him “Yokan, you’re late.” Therefore this temple’s Buddha’s figure is looking back still now. This figure is unusual as Buddha.
