Enshō-ji (圓照寺 or 円照寺) is a Buddhist temple complex in Nara founded by Queen Bunchi, daughter of Emperor Go-Mizunoo, in 1656. Together with Chūgū-ji and Hokke-ji, it is considered one of the Three Yamato Monseki (大和三門跡), or imperial temples, belonging to the Myōshin-ji school of Rinzai Zen.
The temple served as model for Gesshū-ji (月修寺) in Yukio Mishima's Spring Snow and was used as one of the locations for the filming of its 2005 dramatization.
The temple is not open to the public.
