I often go to the star bucks coffee near my house for relaxing and something to do.
わたしはよく近所のスタバにいってくつろいだり、いろいろしたりします

I like the coffee shop because the space is large and I can see an old temple which we can see like that in Kyoto Japan.
そこが良いのは、場所がひろいのと、京都でよくみるような古い寺をながめられるからです

六角堂という古いお寺です、すこし紹介したいと思います
You can find the tenple is called Rokkakudo here. Let me explain about the temple.


聖徳太子(しょうとくたいし)が四天王寺という寺を建立するときに用材を求めて訪れた際霊告により御堂を建てたのが始まりと書いてありました
I walked toward the tenple and found the explanation of it. It tell me that the temple was first built by Prince Shotoku (about thirteenth hundred years ago).He was told by god that you had to build a temple here when he arrived here to search materials for building Shitennooji temple.

7世紀の初頭、当時の皇太子であり実際に政治を行っていた聖徳太子は、仏教を深く学んでこれを広める役割を果たしました。
At the begining of the seventh century, Prince Shotoku who was a prince at that time and conducted the government actually, learned Buddhism enthusiastically by himself and had a role of spreading Buddhism all over Japan.


有難い事に今回わたしもお寺のことを知る機会になりました、古いお寺だったんだ
All of the sudden I found the truth of the tenple this time, I found it older than I expected.
