Chosho-ji Temple


"Bronze Statue of Nichiren"

As the buildings are very new, this temple is better known for its lovely grounds. Some of the miracles attributed to Nichiren supposedly took place at the Koimizu Well here. A huge bronze statue of Nichiren, which Koun Takamura finished in 1923, overlooks the city of Kamakura. Each year in February, priest ascetics participate in their annual "Ice Dousing", a ceremony that goes back more than a thousand years.
