This photograph was taken from Shichimendo in the precincts of Ryukoji Temple. The roof of the main hall is visible to the lower right and the Sanmon (main gate) to the lower right. This was the location of an execution site called Tatsunokuchi during the Kamakura Period. Ryukoji Temple was built here because the site was considered sacred by Nichiren Sect followers, the reason being that Nichiren was almost executed here for criticizing government policies.
