Engaku-ji

Kamakura, Kanagawa Prefecture

After the Japanese regent Hōjō Tokimune had repelled a Mongol invasion
in the years of 1274-1281, he had a Chinese Zen monk found this temple to
honor the dead of both sides of the war. The temple was also to
serve as a center from which the influence of Zen-Buddhism
could be spread over Japan. According to legend, a copy
of the Sutra of Perfect Enlightenment (called engaku-kyō in Japanese)
was dug out of a hillside in a stone chest during the initial building works,
thus giving its name to the temple. Engaku-ji took its present form in
the end of the Edo era (19th century), when it was reconstructed
and consolidated by the Zen priest Seisetsu.

Hikone Castle

Hikone, Shiga Prefecture

Like Matsue Castle shown on the previous page,
this is one of the few Japanese castles which retains its original keep.
Construction on it began back in 1603, at the beginning of
the Edo-period, and it was commissioned by Ii Naokatsu,
son of the former daimyō Ii Naomasa. The keep though,
dates all the way back to 1575, and used to be part of Ōtsu Castle,
building material from the nearby Sawayama Castle were
also used during construction. In 1622 Hikone Castle was
completed by Naomasas brother Ii Naotaka.
The building survived the wave of demolitions in the late
19th century thanks to Emperor Meiji himself,
who had toured the area.

Myōtsū-ji

Obama, Fukui Prefecture

The temple of Myōtsū-ji is believed to have been
founded in 806, although most of the buildings date from the 13th
and 14th centuries. The 22 meter tall Pagoda and
The Kamakura-period Hondō (Main Hall) are the most
important buildings, and are both designated as national treasures.

Rinnō-ji

Nikkō, Tochigi Prefecture

This temple was established in 766 by the Buddhist monk Shōdō.
It is located deep in the mountains of Japan, and due to
its isolation, the temple soon attracted other monks in
search of solitude. In the temple grounds one can find
the mausoleum of Tokugawa Iemitsu (1604-1651),
the third Tokugawa shogun.

Kaichi School Museum

Matsumoto, Nagano Prefecture

The Kaichi School Museum is an example of Giyōfū
(pseudo-western) architecture which quickly spread over
Japan in the early years of the Meiji-period.
The style emerged as a consequence of Japanese
master-carpenters trying to imitate western architecture
and thus incorporates elements from both styles.
This particular building was one of the first schools in Japan,
and opened in 1873. It was relocated in 1963,
and now serves as an education museum.

Hokki-ji

Ikaruga, Nara Prefecture

The 8th century three-storied pagoda at Hokki-ji is the oldest of its
kind in Japan, and is believed to be connected to the
Asuka-period Prince Shōtoku. Supposedly, the building
is situated on top of a palace where the prince had
lectured on the Lotus Sutra, and according to his last will,
it was rebuilt as a temple. The lecture hall, and the Shōten-do
hall are reconstructions dating from 1694 and 1863.
