Daikeiji Temple Kuon no Matsu

img

Within the grounds of the famous "Daikeiji Temple", a black pine tree measuring about 7 m in girth and 25 m in height extends it branches in every direction. Known as the “Kuon no Matsu”, the tree was said to have been planted personally by the Buddhist sage Nichiren about 750 years ago, when he prayed for the eternal flourishment of the way of the Buddha on the way back from his studies at Mt. Hiei. As one of "Japan’s 100 Best Pine Trees", it has been designated as a natural monument of Shizuoka Prefecture.
