Myosenji Temple – Sado – Niigata – 妙宣寺

Located in the heart of Sado Island in Niigata, Myosenji temple is connected to Nichiren Shonin, the founder of the Nichiren School of Buddhism who was exiled to Sado, which evokes a sense of medieval times.

Tamemori Endo (Abutsubo Nittoku Shonin) served Nichiren upon being exiled to Sado and became an avid believer of the Hokke mantra. Together with his wife, Sen-nichini, a Buddhist nun, he opened his residence as a temple in 1278. This is said to be the origin of Myosenji Temple. The temple used to be a residence of the Takeda Honma clan, deputy governor of Sado, and the ambience of a castle still remains. On site stands the only five-story pagoda in Niigata Prefecture, as well as the grave of Suketomo Hino, who was forced into exile on Sado after the Shochu Incident.
