Seichoji Temple (大本山 清澄寺)

"Seichoji is an ancient temple near the summit of Mt. Kiyosumi, said to have been founded by a priest called Fushigi Hoshi in 771. It is known as the temple where Nichiren Shonin, founder of the Nichirensect of Buddhism, first became a monk, established his teachings, and founded his sect. In 1949, it came under the direct control of the Nichirensect and is now Daihonzan Head Temple of Nichirensect. A gigantic so-called ""thousand-year cedar tree"" stands on the temple grounds, and it has long been venerated as a sacred tree, and in 1924, it was designated a National Natural Monument under the name of ""The Great Cedar of Kiyosumi."""

          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 - most famous as the home of Narita Airport - 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.
