Info

The Taiseki-ji High Sanctuary of the Essential Teachings (大石寺 (多宝富士大日蓮華山大石寺), Tahō Fuji Dainichirenge-zan Taiseki-ji), informally known as Taiseki-ji Head Temple sōhonzan (総本山) (English: "Great Rock Field") of the Nichiren Shōshū. It is located on the lower slopes of Mount Fuji in Kamijo, Fujinomiya, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan.
Taiseki-ji was a land donated by Nanjo Shichiro-Jiro Tokimitsu, later founded in the year 1290 by Nikkō Shōnin, one of Nichiren's immediate disciples, and is known for being the home of the venerated Dai-Gohonzon within the Hoando temple complex. The vicinity is visited annually by faithful believers who go on Tozan religious pilgrimages. For the most part, Taisekiji's roaming grounds are open to tourists and visitors for sightseeing, while most buildings, such as the Hoando, are solely restricted only to vowed temple Hokkeko members and pilgrim believers.
