Kankoji Temple
Minami Uonuma City
Zen Dojo with a history of about 600 years
In 1410, a Zen Dojo was founded and it prospered. After the death of Uesugi Kenshin in 1578, and during the Otate War, the chief priest at that time hid the Daihannyakyo, which was a gift from Uesugi, in a soybean paste barrel to protect it from the war, and from this event came the phrase, “Did you taste Kanko-Ji’s soybean paste?”
