Sogo Reido Sanctuary

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
