The Eiheiji Temple, founded by Priest Dogen, is the headquarters of the Soto Sect of Buddhism. The temple is surrounded by over 600-year old cedars and is said to be the most prominent place for Zen discipline. Nearby is Ichijodani Asakura Family Site where the whole castle town from the age of provincial wars is buried. (Photo: Chokushimon Gate, provided by Eiheiji)
