#28 of 1,739 in Historic Sites in Tokyo
Visit Ikegami Hommon-ji Temple, erected in 1252 on the site where revered Buddhist priest Nichiren died on his way to treatment at a hot spring. You'll have a chance to observe the oldest five-story pagoda in the region, with its rare 16th-century architecture (it even survived the Tokyo bombing of 1945). Be aware you'll need to conquer a 96-step climb to the complex, and during October, on the 12th day especially, hundreds of thousands of devotees line up to pay their respects to Nichiren.

  • Because the site was large, it became a light and a good movement. The transportation to Haneda Airport is good, and i feel that there is a good thing when there is room for the airplane when i stop by as much as possible♪

  • It settles down in a beautiful garden. In November, a meeting will be held in November at the five-stooge tower of Ikegami Honmonji Temple, the tomb of Mt. Rikido, and the Nichiren Sect Sohonzan. There is a famous shop of the waste rice cake for a long time in the approach.
