Seiruji is not a historic site, surprisingly it dates to only 1982. But it received a lot of support and has very diligent care. The bronze Showa Big Buddha is certainly the centerpiece, especially with these beautiful lanterns.
The five story pagoda was modeled after Toji Temple in Kyoto and dates to only 1996. But as a testament to modern building techniques it has withstood even the major Tohoku Earthquake of 2011 in spite of being only miles from the epicenter while most five story pagodas throughout Japan's history have not weathered winds and quakes well. source
Our daughter loved the lanterns!
