National Treasure Seihakuji Buddhist Temple(Designated in 1954)

seihakuji.せいはくじ

Seihakuji Temple is a temple of the Rinzai school of Buddhism and is believed to be built in 1333 by the priest Muso Soseki. The calligraphy text discovered in its ceiling proved that the temple was built in 1415. The building survived a large fire in 1682. The temple is representative of the Senshuu style of architecture. You can see ‘Housangen mokoshitsuki butsuden’ in Seihakuji, which is a typical style of Senshuu architecture in the smallest size and with its colors and designs and elaborate lacquer, there is nothing like it anywhere.
During the Kamakura and Muromochi periods, there were many Zenshuu temples built by noblemen and warriors, but the trend eventually faded, so there are few examples of the ancient Senshu architecture left nowadays. Because of this reason, Seihakuji Temple is highly valued.
