  • It is a temple of called Uesugi Kenshin, spent his childhood. Kasugayama Castle is nearby. Sohmon gate, further the worthy Japan garden extends from. Spacious grounds with a respectable Hall. It was felt with its historic and stately Temple.

  • If you came to see the kasugayama Castle of Uesugi, Shinshu temples that will be missed. Tried to go in the Treasure Museum aims at the word of mouth for another person. And rubbings of the monument was Uesugi Kenshin, and original of the portrait in the Treasure Museum everyone has eyes once you have written a spectacular show. Almost all the buildings rebuilt is the spot to visit and the quiet atmosphere of the temple.

  • Great temple
  • The famous Temple of the Soto sect's Temple of name Uesugi Kenshin, Duke of the warring States period. But once the tombs of the Kenshin, but ultimately remains by Uesugi utsf to Yonezawa. Referred to as enshrined in the temple was erected in echigo rinsenji Temple shaped like EST. (Yonezawa-rinsenji Temple). Tombs of the Kenshin accordingly, here is plays as a monument. Sohmon rinsenji entrance is the only building was moved from the kasugayama Castle. Also, "primary" was hung on the gate of a reproduction of the gate by Kenshin; Real are kept in the Treasure Museum, so believe well worth a visit.
