Jokomyo-ji Temple

Jokomyo-ji Temple

Founded by Hojo Tokiyori and Hojo Nagatoki, Shikkens of Kamakura shogunate, and under the patronage of the Akahashi line of the Hojo clan, this temple was developed as a multi-disciplinary multi-sect temple. It is also known as being the place where shogun Ashikaga Takauji once lived after the fall of the Kamakura shogunate, after which he formed a deep relationship with Ashikaga Motouji. The site has many important cultural features, such as the Amitabha triad statue, and the entire precincts are designated as a National Historic Site.
