Neighborhood: Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes. Trends-in-the-making can be spotted in the tall windows of several one-of-a-kind stores featuring local labels and modish boutiques. Arcades, outdoor concert spaces, mega department stores, and small, enchanting cafes have sprung up to accommodate the increasing traffic. Whether looking for souvenirs and kitsch on Shinkyogoku Street, or scoping out the massive food court and restaurant floor at Takashimaya Department store, there's something for every wallet or purse, and a buyer for every item.

新京極から東に行ったお寺が多いエリアの一角にあります。ここの直前に訪問した長仙院と同じく誓願寺の塔頭寺院みたいです、やはりここも門が閉じていて中の見学はできなさそうでした。水子供養寺らしく個人的には縁がなさそうです。

裏町通りにあるお寺、長仙院のそばの奥まったところにあります。水子供養のお寺です。周囲は人通りも少なく静かです。
こちらのお寺も浄土宗です。

裏寺町通りにありますが、通りからはかなり引っ込んだところに山門があります。ビルに囲まれちょっと窮屈そうな感じはしますが、きっと昔は参道の左右も含め境内だったのではないかと思います。

お寺が多く集まっているエリアの少し奥に有る水子供養のお寺のようです。山門に柵が有り、西洋朝顔(と思いますが)絡まっていました。ここから見る光景は静かなお寺だな、という感想ですね。

秀吉が勝手に寺院をこの通りの両サイドに集めた結果、同じような寺院が林立し、宗派も浄土宗系寺院が殆どで、全く特徴がない寺院の集団となっています。ここも浄土宗西山深草派寺院、山号を竹林寺と云う、阿弥陀如来様をご本尊とする寺院です。地元では「京極の水子供養寺」として知られています。寺院にしてみればいい迷惑で、寺院の成立経緯、由緒、地元とのつながりとか・・・全てこの成り上り者の都改造計画とやらで無理やり縁起を断たれてこの場所に集合させられた。たかが一人の成り上り者の、それも実質、たった一代で滅びたようないい加減な者の身勝手な考えで悠久の流れを寸断されるとはたまったものではないと同情します。この「裏寺町通」と云われる地域だけでも13カ寺が集められ、かつてとは比較にならないほど手狭な空間で肩を寄せ合っているように見受けます。おろかな愚策です。

 河原町通と新京極通の間にある通りが裏寺町通だ。豊臣秀吉の京都改造で誕生した浄土宗系のお寺が集められたエリアだが、頂源院はその一角にある。間口はそう広くないうえ、結界柵が置いてあり、入山できなかった。門前の石碑には「水子供養」が刻まれていたが<京極の水子供養寺>として信仰を集めていたという。

長仙寺の並びのちょっと奥まった場所。
「京極の水子供養寺」の石標があって。身寄りのない人を供養する供養塔などがあるよう。日の当たらないところでも何とかしようというお寺の姿勢には頭が下がります。

やや間口の狭い山門から境内の様子を望む事が出来ました。裏寺町通に面した浄土宗西山深草派の寺院の一つです。山門前には寺号の刻まれた碑が立ち、水子供養の文字も併記されていました。又、"京極の水子供養寺"とも表されていました。
