[detail: right half of door] “Higashi Hongan-ji Interior Door. Higashi Hongan-ji is a Jōdo Shinshū (True Pure Land) Buddhist temple in Kyoto. Although it was founded in 1321, the temple’s current location was decided by warlord Toyotomi Hideyoshi as part of the peace deal following the long years of war that his predecessor, Oda Nobunaga, waged against the warrior monks from this temple. The deal was further solidified by Tokugawa Ieyasu, the unifier of Japan, as an irreconcilable split emerged between the sons of the Kennyo, heirs to the former leader of the Ishiyama Hongan-ji. Besides being a famous temple, Higashi Hongan-ji is also the mausoleum for Shinran, the founder of the Jōdo Shinshū sect.” Text and photography by Rekishi no Tabi on Flickr
