Ryuhonji Temple


 GUSOKUSAN RYUHONJI  Temple is known as the ancient temple of the Nichiren sect (head temple) in Ichiban-cho 107, which goes up the Hichihonmatsu-dori Ninnaji Kaido, Kamigyo-ku, Kyoto City, and one of the 8 temples of the Kyoto Nichiren sect. Myoken-ji, Myokaku-ji, and Tatehonji are called Mt. Sangu, both of which are opened by the Nissate Saint, who is the grandson of Nichiren Seinin, in the Hokke-based 160-temple Jurokuga-ji Temple. According to the Hokke Reijoki, which began the investigation this time, it was written that Kogon-in gave land to spread Buddhist law to the world, and that it was Shijo Kushisu Nishi-Uchiichi-cho that built the temple. Later, in 1536, it was destroyed by the Monks of Mt. Hiei, and in 1594 it was relocated to Imandegawa, Kyotogoku, at the behest of Hideyoshi. After that, it was burned down by a large fire in 1708 (1708) and moved to its present location. Currently, buildings such as the main hall, soshido, Onikomojindo, Bell Tower, Hojo, and guest hall are designated as designated tangible cultural properties of Kyoto City as a temple construction representing the Edo period, and the towers of the Buddhist Temple, Olain, Shogyoin, and Gentoin are lined up in the precincts.


 It originated from Myokenji Temple, which was built by The Sun Statue. In 1321, Nichi-eji, a disciple of Nichiren who was involved in the teaching in Kyoto, was founded in Mujizosa Ikoji (Kamigyo-ku, Kyoto City). In 1341, the temple was moved to Shijo Kushisu (near Shijo Omiya, Shimokyo-ku). Myoken-ji Temple was destroyed in 1387 at the Sanryaku-ji Temple, but in 1393 it was revitalized in the SanjoBomonBorikawa River (near the southeast of Nijo Castle) and the temple name was changed to Myomoto-ji Temple.

 In 1413, Myomoto-ji Temple was destroyed again by the sanmon gate, and 5th 19th 1995 escaped difficulties to Tamba. In 1416, Nitto restored the temple to the old site of Myojo-ji Temple (Shijo Kushisu) and called it Honoji, while Mooni re-established Myomoto-ji Temple in Gojo Omiya (later returned to Myojo-ji Temple) and conflicted with Honoji Temple. This Honoji temple was changed to "Lysuji". There is also a different theory about the severing of Myojo-ji Temple (Myomoto-ji Temple) and Honoji Temple (Reedoji Temple), and there is a theory that In 1393, Nitto re-established Myojo-ji Temple in the old land of Shijo Kushisu, and called it Honoji (Nochimoto-ji Temple).

 In 1536, The Temple was burned down along with other Hwashoku sect temples during the Ten grammar flower war, and evacuated to Sakai, but emperor Nara returned to Kyoto after 1542 when he dinged him to the 綸 of the Hokuka sect. In 1544, The Temple of The Temple was rebuilt in Sanjo, Shinmachi. In 1594, at the bee of Hideyoshi Toyotomi, he moved again to teramachi Idagawa (Honji-mae-cho, Kamikyo-ku).

 After being burned down in the Great Fire of Honaga in 1708, it was relocated to its current location and the garan was rebuilt.

 It is called "Ryuju no Mitsugusoku" at the three temples of Myojo-ji, Myokaku-ji, and Tatsumoto-ji.

 His current home is 97th Ueda Mizunuki shu (Shinzan from Myoenji Temple, Kyoto City). Urae Matsugasaki.


 After the great fire of 1708, the soshido, Kaiso-mausoleum, Bell Tower Hall, Hondo Maeido Yakata, Ando Warehouse, etc. were relocated to the present location. Other buildings in the temple were gradually rebuilt. The main hall, the temple hall (Onikomojindo), the guest hall, the bell tower, and the front gate are designated as tangible cultural properties of Kyoto City.

 The main hall was built in 1743, the temple was built in 1811, the guest hall was built in 1728, and the front gate was built in 1778. The bell tower was moved from the old land and was built in the middle of the Edo period. Oniko Mother's Temple was rebuilt after it was burned down in 1783.
