Travel Guide - Ikegami Honmon-ji Temple

InformationInformation

Ikegami Honmon-ji Temple is where Nichiren, a famous high priest in the Kamakura Period (1185 - 1333), passed his final days in 1282. There are spectacular buildings in the large precincts of the temple such as the Great Hall and the oldest Five-story Pagoda in the Kanto area, constructed in 1608. The lows of retro buildings and shops leading to the temple are also a delight.
From October 11 through 13, a Buddhist memorial service called "Oeshiki" is held to commemorate the anniversary of High Priest Nichiren's death. In particular, Mando-Neri-Kuyo (a parade with hundreds of Mando lanterns) held in the evening of October 12 is the highest of the ceremony and its breathtaking sight attracts a crowd of 300,000 people every year.
