Kencho-ji

Kencho-ji

Kencho-Ji Temple originally comprised seven main buildings and 49 sub-temples, but most of these were destroyed in a series of fires during the 14th and 15th centuries. In the Tokugawa Era, however, the Zen master Takuan succeeded in restoring Kencho-Ji to much of its former splendor with the help of aid from the Shogunate. At present, the Kencho-Ji complex contains about 10 sub-temples and 10 other main buildings.
