Daihonzan Soujiji Soin Temple (大本山總持寺祖院)
The Daihonzan Soujiji Soin Temple is a temple belonging to the Soto school of Buddhism located in Wajima City, Ishikawa Prefecture. This was originally the head temple of the Soto school, but a fire in 1898 caused severe damage to the temple, so the function of head temple was relocated to a temple in Yokohama City, and the temple in Wajima was renamed the Soujiji Soin Temple (“Founder’s Temple”). Today, the buildings within the Temple precincts include the Kyozo (Sutra Repository), Dento-in and Jiun-kaku, which all survived the fire, as well as Shichido-garan (Seven halls) that were rebuilt after the fire; the Temple continues to retain the solemn majesty appropriate to the former head temple of the Soto school.

Long, thin Ishikawa prefecture runs along the Sea of Japan up into Noto Peninsula. Highlights of the seaside towns lining the west coast include Kanazawa, often described as a "Little Kyoto" thanks to its old wooden tea houses and geisha culture as well as its picturesque Japanese garden, Kenroku-en.
