This is a temple located in Ashina, in Yokosuka City. It features quiet grounds and a large tiled roof that spreads out like wings. It is said that the Shochojuin in Kamakura was destroyed by a typhoon in the Kamakura period, and then it was moved to its current location. Enshrined in the back are a total of five Buddhist statues, including the Amida Sanzon Triad, a statue of Fudo Myoo, and a statue of Bishamonten. All of these Buddhist statues were made by the Buddhist image sculptor, Unkei, who flourished during the Kamakura period. All are designated as National Important Cultural Properties and are exhibited in March and October, but can also be viewed by paying a visitation fee and making a reservation in advance.
