It is a temple of Nichiren-shu (one of the factions of Japanese Buddhism) founded by Nichiro Shonin (senior priest), who was a disciple of Nichiren (founder of Nichiren-shu). Before its foundation it was a mansion of Yadoya Mitsunori, who was the close aid of Hojo Tokiyori (a shogun of the Kamakura Shogunate). There is a beautiful garden on the temple grounds where you can enjoy seasonal flowers throughout the year. Especially beautiful is the 150-year-old hall crabapple tree, which blooms in early April.
