Jourakuji Temple

In 1237, this temple was built by Yasutoki Hojo to honor his mother-in-law. After Yasutoki died, the temple was named after his Buddhist title. It is known that Lanxi Daolong, a famous Chinese monk who founded Kenchoji, lived here. Together with an Amitabha statue, which is the main object of worship, Lanxi Daolong is also enshrined here.
