Bodaitei flanked by cedar trees at Minobusan Kuonji Temple, headquarters of the Nichiren Sect of Japanese Buddhism in Minobu-machi, Minamikoma-gun, Yamanashi Prefecture. Bodaitei was a flight of 287 steps leading through the temple gate (Sangedatsumon, or Gate of the Three Liberations) to Soshido Seishinkaku. There are few trees on the hillside to the right of Bodaitei, probably due to the fire of 1875.
