Zenringai禅林街

Other Historic Site/Building

This is an area in Aomori Prefecture hosting 33 temples of the Soto school of Zen Buddhism. The second lord of the Hirosaki Domain, Tsugaru Nobuhira, ordered temples to gather along the southwestern side of the Hirosaki Castle precincts in 1610. As these temples of the same school sprouted up like a forest along the tree lined road, it created a temple town unlike any other in Japan.

          Centuries-old stories of samurai at Kakunodate and the remains of millennia-old archaeological sites including the likes of Isedotai invite history buffs to delve into Aomori’s fascinating history. As the most northern prefecture on the Japanese mainland, Aomori enjoys a cooler climate, which makes it a welcome escape from the southern cities for combining castles, art galleries, and summer festivals with the great outdoors.
