  • It is surrounded by the folds of the Matsutake valley, dotted with dou and spiritual ruins. This temple is said to have become a base for the teaching of the Nichiren Sect by The Nichiren Kamihito, who wrote "The Theory of Tatemasa yasu kuni". The mountain is The Myoho Huakeiyama, and the founding is five years (1253) in the year of its founding, and the main son is Buddha Buddha. "Tatemasa An kokusai", written by Nichiren in the hope of the security of the country and the happiness of the people, is the only right method of "Myoho Renhua Sutra" and "Hoka Sutra", and it is this that it is insisted that it is necessary to avoid the evil sect to the people of the rule country Anpeople. It is said that "The Theory of The Rissho an kokukoku" was established in the first year of the monthly ceremony. On the day I visited this temple, the gate of the temple was closed for some reason, and i was able to visit it from the back door in the garden, but I couldn't get a red seal. I thought that it was a very good temple which settled down though I was allowed to walk about the garden etc.

  • Ladies and gentlemen, as you know, this temple is Temple of Nichiren's is. It is less and have little distance from Kamakura station, even when customers are going. You can learn more slowly,. A study in Kamakura. Have three crabapple planted cherry trees that Nichiren's used to "control-no-Iwaya cave, Nichiren's cane"cherry tree", Kamakura (that the name of the tree). Next to the temple, is the resting place, I can also order of sweetness. Admission 100 yen is cheap, it is.

  • The entry fee is 100 yen for this quite big area in a small valley. The first level is very well maintained, and the moss areas are a feast for your eyes. As you climb up the stairs, maintenance is not made much, and at the top of the hill, you will find a bronze bell that's you can't ring. There is a sacred cave that is not allowed to anyone except the main monk of the shrine. Go there mainly for the walk in the forest, as the buildings, while quite big, aren't very interesting.
  • Lovely staff very eager to assist and nice footpath to walk around to see the whole grounds.
