Zuiganji Temple瑞巌寺

Temple

Zuiganji Temple is a temple founded by the priest Jikaku Daishi in 828 that belongs to the Rinzai school of Zen Buddhism headed by Myoushin-ji Temple. After the temple fell into decline during the mayhem of the warring states, the feudal lord Date Masamune began restoration work in 1604 and four full years later the hondo (main temple building) was renovated to conform to Momoyama-style architecture. At that time it was officially renamed as Matsushima-Seiryuzan-Zuigan-Enpuku-Zenji. Sights to see include the Kuri, the Zen kitchen where meals were prepared in the past. This so-called kitchen has been designated as a National Treasure for its beauty.

          Lying along the northeastern coast of Japan, Miyagi prefecture is home to lashings of natural parks, oysters, and hot springs. While the bustling city of Sendai offers some simple city entertainment, it’s the Matsushima islands that deserve the most attention, having boosted the prefecture’s reputation as one of Japan’s most scenic views.
