Sofukuji Temple

 

Sofukuji Temple
Shortly after the construction of Kofukuji Temple, Chinese 
traders asked the Nagasaki governor for permission to 
built Chinese temples according to their home provinces.

It is recorded that this temple was built in 1629 by people 
who came from Fuzhou in Fujian Province.

It is designated as a National Treasure.


 

The existing main hall ( called Daiyuhoden ) was first 
prefabricated in China, then transported by Chinese s
hip and constructed in 1646.
As the oldest existing structure to retain the Obaku 
style of the end of the Ming Dynasty, the temple’s hall is 
highly evaluated.
