Jyakukozan Ryukoji Temple. Nichiren was arrested in Ankokuronji at Nagoe for interrogation by the regent Hojo Tokimune. He came to Ryunokuchi and prayed facing south at midnight, and is said to have been saved from beheading by miracles. This is the so-called "Honan of Ryunokuchi ", and Ryukoji Temple was built there after the death of Nichiren.
