PLACES

Banshoji, The Temple of the Oda Clan / 織田家の菩提寺「万松寺」 02

2013.01.15 [PLACES,Samurai Central Nagoya-Aichi,WHAT'S NEW]

萬松寺が大須に移されたワケ
Why did Banshoji move to Osu? 

名古屋城築城と共に、場所を大須に移された萬松寺。
徳川家康の当初の命は、織田家の菩提寺を大須ではなく、名古屋城からもっと遠く離れた場所への移築で
あったが、尾張初代藩主・徳川義直(家康の九男)の妻・春姫の希望により、大須の地が選ばれたと言われている。

 

 

Having the Oda family temple within the shadow of the Tokugawa clan’s Nagoya Castle was considered unlucky and so the temple was ordered to relocate. At first the temple was ordered to move to a location near modern day Gokiso, however the lord of Nagoya Castle, Tokugawa Yoshinao’s wife was a follower of the abbot and suggested the temple be moved to a smaller plot of land, but close enough to be able to visit regularly, and so the temple was re built at it’s present site in 1610.

Destroyed by allied bombing in World War Two, Banshoji was again rebuilt, along with the surrounding shopping arcade. The arcade was popular particularly during the late 50’s and 60’s, however fell into decline during the late 80’s. In the mid 90’s the area commenced a reform project which has seen a marked improvement in numbers of shoppers and new shops coming to the area. Today, it is a vibrant shopping area, popular with young people looking for cheap but interesting fashion ware, computer and electronics, and variety stores.

 

Visitors to the arcade shops often stop by the temple to make small offerings and pray to the deity within.
To visit Nobuhide’s grave, look for a small pathway leading under the temple to the left of the main prayer hall.
The pathway will take you under and behind the Banshoji to the grave. Another thing to look out for is the robotic Karakuri Ningyo, mechanical dolls in traditional samurai costume, created by traditional master craftsman Tamaya Shobe, which appear on a balcony above the temple at 10am, 12, 2, 4 and 6pm during the day.

 

Despite the modern appearance, Banshoji has a long and colorful history, its a history you can feel simply by being there.
