  • Myoonji temple is the oldest temple in the Nichiren Sect, which was opened by The Nichiren Kamihito. There was a residence of the Hi-Yi clan which was the aide of Genyori dynasty in this ground, and it was defeated in the struggle, and the temple was built in 1260. It is located in tanido facing Mt. Gion and is a very quiet place with a deep mountain atmosphere. Kamakura's largest wooden Buddhist temple building, The Soshido, is also excellent.

  • It is a famous but quiet temple. The red seal is in the office on the way. You can drink water there in the summer. It is a temple with a good atmosphere.

  • My dream has come true.. Visiting this place. Place of serenity...
  • One of the best temples I have been to in Japan. Very serene with fantastic views. Only a handful of other tourists there too, a welcome change from the number at other temples. Surrounded by lush forests and beautiful gardens inside.
