Ankokuron-ji
 
 
 
Nichiren
- who is the founder of the Nichiren sect (one of the Kamakura Buddhism), founded Ankokuron-ji in 1253. Nichiren wrote and petitioned the policy proposal document to the Kamakura shogunate here. However, since the contents of writing were too excessive, anger of Tokiyori Hojo who was regency of those days was incurred and Nichiren was sentenced to deportation to Izu as a result. There remains a cave in the precincts of a temple, in which Nichiren took refuge temporarily when Nichiren was set on fire from other religions. You can see the sea and Mt. Fuji well from Fujimidai along which Nichiren also passed.
