Taisekiji Temple is the head temple of Nichiren Shoshu, a sect of Buddhism. It was founded in 1290 by Nikko, a disciple of Nichiren. The complex features many buildings, a small garden, and beautiful cherry blossoms in the spring.

Some of the temple buildings are only open to believers. They also have accommodations only for believers. Do NOT attempt to enter the hoando (main temple building) if you do not belong to this faith; all who enter must be believers, and those who are not are to be converted right there.

It is free to roam the temple grounds.
