Reviewed 7 July 2010

This temple is best known by the cycads 1,100 years old and the oldest in Japan. And its garden Kampuen (Mt Fuji viewing garden) is nice. At the pond of the garden I heard "moo" the sign that an American bullfrog is in the pond and splash! It just reminded me of the Basho's "old-pond-and-a-frog" poem. This temple is a Nichiren Bhuddhism temple and in its main building the life of Nichiren one of the most popular 13th century priests is well illustrated. Nichiren is one of the five historical figures Kanzo Uchimura picked as representative Japanse in his book "Japan and the Japanese" . Chogyu Takayama is one of the Meiji Period intellectuals who was inspired by Nichiren's teachings and was buried there. The treasure trove of the temple called Chogyukan has wide variety of treasures with historical interests including various gohonzons (the object of worship) of Nichiren Bhuddhism. These mandaras are made up of squiggly kanji characters of Hindu gods and Shinto gods and native gods. It is truly worth a visit.
