  • It is located on the side of Mt. Noda, which overlooks Kanazawa city. It is an old tomb of the Soto sect which was called "Norinori Daijo" because of the severity of the training. According to Teraden, in 1263, it originated when Tomitaka Iesho invited Sumiumi of the Shingon sect to Nonoichi City. After that, he turned to Zen temple, and in 1289, he opened the soto sect's Torutsu Yoshisuke. In 1302, Hatakeyama Shaoxing, who opened Sojiji Temple, became a second-generation resident. After many changes, it became a bodhi temple of the Kaga clan's old Family in the early Edo period, and it seems to have moved to its present location. It is not a tourist temple and there is no admission fee. It is also a dojo where 20 people are still training. When you enter the precincts, you can feel the breath of cloud water in the calm air. There is also a free Zazen party on Sundays.
