Hoto-ji Temple (宝塔寺)
Hoto-ji Temple is a Buddhist temple belonging to the Nichiren Sect located in Fushimi-ku Ward, Kyoto City. The sango (literally, "mountain name"), which is the title prefixed to the name of a Buddhist temple) is Fukakusayama (Mt. Fukakusa). Its principal image is Jikkai Mandala (Ten Realms Mandala).
The temple's predecessor was the Shingon Sect Gokuraku-ji Temple (founded by Kanpaku (chief advisor to the emperor) FUJIWARA no Mototsune).
It was converted to the Nichiren Sect in 1307 by Nichizo.
Fell into ruin as a result of the Onin War.
It was revived in 1590 by Nichigin (a disciple of Nichigyo).
The temple name Hoto-ji Temple (lit. burial ground temple) originated due to the fact that the remains Nichiren, Nichiro and Nichizo were interred at the temple.
