Samurai Kunimori Endo, who had accompanied Emperor Juntoku to Sado Island, encountered the Buddhist priest Nichiren and after converting to Buddhism, he constructed Seson-ji in 1273. The temple is known as the first Nichiren sect temple on Sado. The elaborately designed Akamon gate, the thatch-roofed Nagayamon gate and the flat wooden main hall stand in the middle of Mother Nature.
