Shochuzan Hosenin Temple is one of the four oldest branch temples of Hokekyoji called Nakayama Yoninke. Nichiin who was a sumurai worrier from Kamakura to Muromachi period named Tanesada Chiba, became a Buddhism priest and built this temple in 1313. It is on the way to Okunoin from Hokekyoji Temple. The temple was beautifully decorated with white and red crape myrtle blossoms in summer and yellow and red maple leaves in fall so it was a famous spot for viewing colored leaves. Moreover, it was a important temple since the venerable Niisshin who was called Nabekaburi Nisshin (putting a pan on his head) worked hard on his mission in Kyoto and Kyushu in Muromachi period and entered the Buddhist priesthood in it. Why don't you visit Shochuzan Hosenin Temple?
