Kokoku-ji Temple

Kokoku-ji mixes history with legend. It was built in 1227 in memory of Minamoto no Sanetomo, an unfortunate shogun assassinated by his nephew. In the years following its construction, legend has it that the temple was badly damaged by fire but reconstructed in a single night by a local mountain spirit, or 'tengu'. The temple now pays homage to both the deceased shogun and the mythical tengu.
