Travel Guide - Tanjoh-ji Temple


Tanjoh-ji Temple was constructed to commemorate the birthplace of Holy Priest Nichiren. It also serves as the head temple for the Nichiren sect of Buddhism. It is that "three prophecies" occurred when Nichiren was born, a spring opened up quite suddenly in the garden, lotus flowers bloomed suddenly near the shore, and an infinite number of schools of sea bream appeared suddenly off the shore.
