  • Located south of Myoonji Temple, it is a temple of the Nichiren Sect, which was founded in 1606. It is a temple that is nicknamed "Botamochi-ji Temple" from the legend that the name of the nun who saved the plight of Nichiren is named after the temple and dedicated "Botamochi" to the sent-off Sunren. The precincts are small and there are many trees and flowers and a calm atmosphere, but I don't think there is any thing to see.

  • It is said that the back mountain of this temple was the place where yorito sill built to look at Yuiga beach in the Kamakura period. Later, when the pier where he lived with his husband, who guarded the pier, and Hisiren went to the prison of the dragon in Fujisawa, where Heren was executed as a traitor to the Shogunate, he dedicated his gift. Nichiren is a temple that was founded at the beginning of the Edo period and is another name for The Temple, which was built at the beginning of the Edo period due to the fact that he escaped execution and was sentenced to life in prison for his sentence to Sado. The official name of the temple is derived from the name of the nun on the pier. Every year on September 12th, on The Day of The Sun Renkami-man Law Difficulty, it seems to be crowded with people who want to "neck-and-neck mori" that is behaved in the precincts!! Although it is a narrow precinct, two Olympic towers, a precinct shrine, and a monument that read the late temple's founding are built.
