Ankokuron-ji Temple

Ankokuron-ji Temple

This temple was established in 1253 (Kencho 5) by the founder of Nichiren Buddhism, Nichiren Shonin. The name of this temple originates from the fact that Rissho Ankoku Ron (“On Securing the Peace of the Land by Establishing True Teachings of Buddhism”) was written here. This place is surrounded by hills and abundant with nature; the seasonal flowers and trees, such as plum, sakura, peach blossom, azalea, crepe-myrtle and sasanqua camellia, are beautiful. Here, you can enjoy a view of Mount Fuji and take a little hike. In autumn, the fall foliage of maple and gingko leaves is a sight to behold.
