Founded in 1467 (Onin 1). A sermon given by the chief priest of "Ryukazan Zenshoji", which has a history over 550 years.

Some people may find it a bit formal, but sermons convey the teachings of Buddhism in an easy-to-understand manner.
One of the charms of sermons is that you can listen to stories from various perspectives, such as daily events, world news, and topics.

Listening to sermons may give you new insights.
The "Fusho no Matsu" in the precincts is shaped like a 300-year-old bonsai tree, and its roots protrude from the ground. The one and only black pine.
