Gochi Kokubunji Temple

Kokubunji Temple was built as a prayer for peace and prosperity in Japan during the Tenpyo period of the Nara Era, (729-749). Though the structure has changed its location and scale, it still retains its graceful appearance in Gochi, Naoetsu.
The main buildings are the main hall, the 3-storied tower, the library for sacred texts ("Kyouzou"), the gate ("Nioumon") and Shinran Hall. The main hall features five 4-foot statues of the 5 gods of wisdom, and the Hall of Shinran features an 80 cm. statue of the seated monk.
In the storehouse, there is a complete version of the Buddist texts, while there are several religious sculptures housed in the 3-storied tower. The Nioumon gate is receiving donations for its repair.
