Ever since the establishment by Shodo Shonin more than 1,200 years ago, the entire area of Nikko has served as a place for worship. Rinnoji is also known for its unique, intriguing ceremony called Gohanshiki. *The temple’s main hall, Sanbutsudo, is currently undergoing “the great repair of the Heisei period.” Until 2020, visitors will be able to have the unique and valuable experience of looking down into the main hall from above.
