  • Hokke Shu true epithets headquarters. In the Nishijin district north of Imadegawa Street. Escaped destruction from the fire of ' non-baked Temple (yakezunotera) "at least is known. Pine tree of the 夜泣 flag stops crying children on the grounds of Nishijin-Ori GOI, one 名井 千代野 water and pine-needle pillow lay down and said, there are many attractions. I went several times now, but we went in early June was under renovation. You want to go after work again.

  • *●*●* 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
