  • Has been a pilgrimage with his nephew at the town cause my nephew got in elementary school books. Kokubunji-Uesugi Kenshin, was rebuilt at this place (imitation of a young person (lol)). And, of the five large statues, five known Buddha. Shinran becomes banished to an island, on this ground, carved his statues. Matsuo Basho in the middle of the journey, the haiku poem in Joetsu monument. There were things I see. For more history and more profound ones. He was raise Deva repair donations. It is very difficult to leave the old ones. There are fundraising, returned. Visit 2 year new year's Eve, well, Kokubunji comes home. Two people you like is about 30 minutes from 12:00? Are we gave you through new year's Eve. In a solemn atmosphere, able to see. Walking, is a shrine-Jinja in 1 minute and ladder.
