Located in Nagano, Zenko-ji is known as the largest temple in Eastern Japan and dates back to the 7th century, making it older than the city around it. The temple is associated with both war and peace and is connected to several of Japan’s significant conflicts. Including a clan war that resulted in the temple’s prized Buddha statue being thrown into a nearby canal. The statue was saved and restored to the temple by Yoshimitsu Honda whose name translates to Zenko in Chinese.
