  • The main hall of the essential heavy sentence and the soshido were under construction completely. I can't see anything in the fence. From the east entrance, it was surrounded to the gate... the south gate was barely a splendid decoration. It seems to be the sohonyama of the Hoka Sect shinmon-ryu, but there seems to be another name with "Unyaki-ji temple" from the large fire in the vicinity of the Edo period. Only the photograph of the main hall is the one when it visited before.

  • Honryuji Temple is the main mountain of the Hoka Sect Shinmon-ryu in the Nishijin district. It is a temple of a large site. This temple is also a hidden place of cherry blossoms. However, it is under going on a major renovation work now. The outside wall was unique and elaborate. The tiles are embedded.

  • *●*●* Honryuji Temple 本隆寺 *●*●* This temple located in the central par of Nishijin area is called Honryuji. It was founded in 1488 C.E. by Nisshin and is the head of the Hokke Shu Shin-Monryu sect. They practice Hokkekyo = Lotus Sutra. It was later expanded in 1542, but suffered a war-related damage in 1653 and rebuilt in 1658. There was a large fire accident called " Great Fire of Tenmei " broke out in 1788 which is the biggest fire accident in the history of Kyoto. This accident caused damage to approximately 80% of Kyoto city. This incident almost burned the entire Nishijin area to the ground, but Honryuji miraculously survived this fire and later it was called by another name " A fire-proof temple of Nishijin ". ( Trans-word+ : TGM Kyoto Guide )
  • Makoto Yamato is the head of the Hokke Shu (founder) of the temple. It is in the ground of Kyoto Nishijin, and Kei Hikari Infinite Yamamoto Myokuji temple. Because the main hall escaped the Great Fire of Tenmei, it is also called the Unbaked Temple. There are "Chiioi" of Nishijin Five water and "pine of the Night cry Stop". The Heisei great renovation work is done now, and it is not possible to visit the main hall. ◇ See this Takashi Temple Web site Kyoto historical Stroll map
