  • It is a temple of the Nichiren sect. It was founded in The Age of The Great, The Age of The Rising Sun. The Honshoji Temple of The Nichiren Sect Temple is a temple called Mt. Myoko and is also known as Higashi-Munobu. It is popular locally by the name "Morning Morning". I thought there was a big red lantern hanging on the gate, but it wasn't today.

  • The red seal is the reception of the entrance. The people in the temple are polite. There is a Niomon gate. It's relatively empty. The temple on this street is quieter than the temple of the tourist dog.

  • I really loved this temple. Bustling and busy with visitors, it is easy to see that it is a well loved temple by all. A beautiful temple.
  • Quite big shrine with a big wooden gate. Free to visit. Not possible to get or see inside the main building. The park is wide, a bit empty but has some nice trees.
