Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Oeshiki memorial services today. Impressed and went for the first time, but long lantern, lanterns, drum line, overwhelmed by the solemn atmosphere of the Nichiren sect's largest Autumn Festival. I felt the number of stalls also turn out very much, more than new year's day of the new year.

  • On weekdays you can walk around the temple. Vermillion book is also available in three places. Experience Shakyo 30 minutes at 1000 yen. Spring cherry blossoms of early autumn fragrance, was healed.
