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.
