  • Ryuko-ji Temple is a Nichiren sect located 3 minutes ' walk from Enoshima station Motoyama (spiritual pilgrimage Temple). When I went to Enoshima Island in December, I worship. Big Mon greets visitors. This area's execution grounds mark was so executed by the Kamakura shogunate founder Nichiren is (in Nichiren Buddhism, Dragon-is known as the mouth Memorial). Wooden Keyaki structure was built during the Meiji era in the five-story pagoda. It is with a five-story pagoda of the Meiji era, a nationally rare. Recommended posted that would be interested in shrines and temples.

  • Down the river electric, go to Enoshima in the opposite direction. I heard about three weeks ago the Festival before. Doesn't have the book only the Nichiren sect, and his subject matter is not what you wrote.

  • For the peace and security of the nation and people's relief, many State punishing Xiao logically have made, though, Lotus was sent by the shogunate to head past Dragon's mouth. I built this ryuko-ji Temple (ryuukouji) there. To spur left Emon Lieutenant asked as written in various control behaviour at this place called Tatsumi star shines brilliantly, official of the Samurai who had intimidated and is forced to stop executions. Talk, Lotus itself follows. "Pandemonium 江noshima-like, light barrel thing, Mari, Tatsumi as taking reasonable 戌亥 to over light" stuck like was starting the round. It as either a comet or unidentified flying objects be blinded by light shining through at the moment of his execution is not extraordinary. Certainly worked on some action. Dropped at tsurugaoka Hachiman-gu shrine here before you scold Hachiman great bodhisattva in front of the gate. Day duty is the patron of those committed to for the Lotus Sutra Lotus is scolded for going to Hachiman great bodhisattva is not made anything as a result. And it's stars Tatsumi. It feels very logical phenomenon is happening. In any case, no difference in place should be commemorated in, stood in the stage a new Lotus.

  • Ryukoji is a beautiful Nichiren Shu Buddhist Temple. It was built on the site of the attempted execution of the priest Nichiren. You can see the cave where he was imprisoned. It is a simple temple with a calm atmosphere. The priests where friendly. If you don't speak Japanese, they have an English language pamphlet about the temple. It is near the famous Enoshima island. Ryuko-ji Temple is beautiful. The Nichiren was imprisoned here in the cave. I can speak a little Japan. I told the priest. Priests are friendly. I purchased the amulet. I wrote my wish EMA.
