Sogo Reido Sanctuary宗吾霊堂

Temple

The full name of this temple is Meishozan Toshoji Temple Sogo Reido, but this temple is better known as just Sogo Reido or Sogo-sama. In the early part of the Edo period (1603-1868), peasants suffering due to poor harvests and high taxes decided to appeal directly to the shogun, but in exchange for a reassessment of taxes, the headman of the Sakura domain, Kiuchi Sogoro, was executed along with his family. He is enshrined as Sakura Sogo, a name derived from his Buddhist name, Sogodokankoji

          The Boso Peninsula forms the main body of Chiba prefecture, and this is where you’ll find its endless warm water beaches and jagged mountains. Further inland, Naritaーmost famous as the home of Narita Airportーis a secret haven of tradition and history in the form of centuries-old Shinshoji Temple and quaint wooden Edo buildings. Chiba prefecture is also home to both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea.
