Sōji-ji is one of two daihonzan of the Sōtō school of Zen Buddhism. The other is Eihei-ji temple in Fukui Prefecture. Fodor's calls it "one of the largest and busiest Buddhist institutions in Japan". The temple was founded in 740 as a Shingon Buddhist temple. Keizan, later known as Sōtō's great patriarch Taiso Jōsai Daishi, founded the present temple in 1321, when he renamed it Sōji-ji with the help and patronage of Emperor Go-Daigo. The temple has about twelve buildings in Tsurumi, part of the port city of Yokohama, one designed by the architect Itō Chūta.HistoryGiving it the name Morooka-dera circa 740, Gyōki (668-749) founded the temple as a Shingon Buddhist temple in Noto, a peninsula on Honshu, Japan's largest island. At that time, the temple was a small chapel within the precincts of a larger Shinto shrine called Morooka Hiko Jinja. By 1296, the temple had grown enough to support a full-time priest and a master ajari named Jōken was assigned there.Using our international travel planner, Yokohama attractions like Soji-ji Temple can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

緑に包まれた丘にある素晴らしく美しいお寺です。修行されている若いお坊さんがたくさんいらっしゃるようです。そういうこともあってか、なにか非常に厳粛な雰囲気に満ちていて、気軽に散歩にきたつもりでも、いつもどこか緊張してしまいます。暑い日には売店で冷たいものを飲んだり、お土産にごま豆腐を買って帰るのも楽しみです。This is a beautiful temple is surrounded by green hills. It seems a lot of young monks have been trained. Even going there that are full of something very solemn, has to walk freely, always nervous or somewhere. Drink on a hot day at the shop cool stuff, souvenirs bought Sesame tofu and home is fun.show original
