TAISEKIJI - JAPAN


Taisekiji is the head temple of Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism. It is at the foot of Mt. Fuji in Fujinomiya city, Shizuoka Prefecture in Japan. Nichiren Shoshu has temples and centers worldwide and actively propagates the teachings of the True Buddha, Nichiren Daishonin, who made His advent in Japan in 1222. He chose a scenic plateau called Oishigahara (the fields of great stones) and started to construct a central temple with the help of his disciples and followers. A 470 square meters temple called the Daibo was finally completed in October 1290, which he named Taho-fuji Dainichi-renge-zan Taiseki-ji. It was the ninth year after Nichiren Daishonin had passed away. From that time on, Taisekiji temple has firmly protected the Dai-Gohonzon of the High Sanctuary of True Buddhism, so that Nichiren Daishonin's Buddhism has been preserved in its complete purity for the seven centuries until today.
