Seichoji Temple

Seicho-ji Head Temple, standing at the top of Mt. Kiyosumi, is closely related to Nichiren (a Buddhist monk).
Sennen Sugi (1,000-year old Japanese cedar), a national natural treasure, and 1,200-year old Hoshi-no-Ido (well of star) are in the precincts.
There is Asahi-ga-Mori, where the sun rises earlier than in any other place in Japan. Koku Bosatsu, a bodhisattva who ensures your academic achievements and protects you against evils, has been housed.
Lodgings are provided, and the vegetarian food (reservation necessary) has a good reputation.
There are many must-see places, such as a treasure hall and cultural assets. It is also a birthplace of Kyokushin Karate.
