Ryuko-ji (Ryuko Temple) (the Place of "Tatsunokuchi Persecution")
ryuko01This is the temple of Nichiren-shu Minobu school, and it was established in 1337 at the site of Tatsunokuchi Execution. There is a five-storied pagoda.
In the midnight of 12 September, 1271, Nichiren was tried to be beheaded by Hei-no-Saemonnojo Yoritsuna at the Tatsunokuchi execution near Enoshima. Before a man tried to behead Nichiren, round shining object appeared suddenly from the direction of Enoshima, and they were blinded. So Nichiren was not killed. It seems that the story of "round shining object" is the Bull shooting star.
This photo is the monument of "Tatsunokuchi Persecution".

Nice view of Shonan Coast, Enoshima and Fuji mountain, and this is where many people take photos. Many camera lovers get awards as they took photos here. Especially the view of sunset is very beautiful. The road is extremely crowded, and there is no big parking lot by Inamura-ga-saki. There is another public parking lots where we should walk for about 10 minutes. Sometimes it is full weekend. If you go there by car, please have lunches at the restaurants near Inamura-ga-saki, and park your car at the restaurant, and enjoy the view of Inamura-ga-saki. Instead of it, please park your car at Yui-ga-hama or Shichiri-ga-hama parking lots, and take the Enoden (Enoshima-dentetsu; Enoshima Electric Railways). We recommend to use "Park & Ride".
