Travel Guide - Kyonin-ji Temple


Kyonin-ji Temple was established by the Holy Priest Nichiren in 1281 to console the souls of his apprentice and the lord of Amatsu Castle Kudo Yoshitaka. They were killed when Nichiren was attacked in a sectarian conflict.
The large pine trees found on the temple grounds are impressive, and the hydrangea bloom beautifully in the early summer. The giant podocarpus tree stands in the temple grounds is said to be the place where the god Kishimojin appeared and saved Nichiren during the attack.
