Taiseki-ji Temple

Our Head Temple, Taiseki-ji

Taiseki-ji is the head temple of Nichiren Shoshu. It is beautifully landscaped and located in the foothills of Mount Fuji. Taiseki-ji preserves more than 700 years of history and is the source for over 700 branch temples worldwide. It is where the Dai-Gohonzon is enshrined and where the successive High Priests teach disciples and believers the orthodox practice of Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism.


Every year, Nichiren Shoshu Believers make pilgrimage to Taiseki-ji, which is called Tozan (translated as "to climb the mountain") to worship the Dai-Gohonzon and receive an audience with the High Priest,

Making a Tozan pilgrimage is part of the essential practice in Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism.
