Travel Guide - Hanko-ji Temple (Iidaka-Danrin)

InformationInformation

Hanko-ji Temple, or called "Iidaka-Danrin", was established in 1580 as the first Hokke-shu's Danrin (priest training institute) in the Kanto region. Hokke-shu was ranked the highest and the largest school of Buddhism during the Edo period (1603 – 1868) and the temple was prosperous at that time. However, it later became abandoned during the Meiji period (1868 – 1912) because of the education reform by the Meiji government.
Nonetheless, the Lecture hall, Bell Tower, Drum Tower and the main gate were well-preserved and were designated as important historical and cultural relics at national and prefecture level. Iidaka-Danrin is regarded as Japan's oldest university as the precursor of today's Rissho University.
