Soshido Seishinkaku at Minobusan Kuonji Temple, headquarters of the Nichiren Sect of Japanese Buddhism. This temple is located in Minobu-machi, Minamikoma-gun, Yamanashi Prefecture. Seishinkaku is the place where a famous statue of Nichiren, the founder of the sect, is located. However, the building erected in the Edo Period was destroyed by fire in 1875. This photograph depicts the new building erected in 1881. The state of the surroundings suggests that it was taken soon after construction.
