Seikenji Temple

A historic temple with a beautiful, relaxing garden

Built around 1300 years ago, Seikenji Temple features a beautiful garden that has been designated as a national scenic spot, a gate built without the use of nails and a plum tree planted by the great shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu himself.
During the Edo era, this temple was used to entertain and accommodate the Korean and Ryukyu envoys as they made their way toward Edo (modern-day Tokyo) from Nagasaki. Precious materials from those times are still preserved at the temple.
Seikenji Temple is located on a scenic hill overlooking Suruga Bay. Come here to get a sense of historical Asian diplomacy, and enjoy the beautiful garden and view.
