Story & Recommendation
Think back on their way of life at the Oda Nobunaga family temple
The usually closed Daitoku-ji Soken-in temple will hold a special opening event this spring! Soken-in is a sub-temple of Daitoku-ji, the main temple of the Daitoku-ji faction of the Rinzai sect of Buddhism. Toyotomi Hideyoshi built this temple to pray for the soul of Oda Nobunaga. The temple’s name comes from Nobunaga’s legal name. “Soken” means “Seer of all” and if you look at that period, it appropriately represents his life, as Nobunaga strived for the unification of the whole country under one rule. Within Soken-in, there is a wooden statue of a sitting Oda Nobunaga dedicated by Hideyoshi which has been designated as an important cultural asset, the tombstones of the Nobunaga family and a beautiful, modern tea room. We defiantly recommend anyone interested in deepening their understanding of Oda Nobunaga to take this chance to visit this temple.
