Joeiji Temple story dates from the 13th century. There was an observatory deck on this site built for the founder of Kamakura Shogunate to get a view of Yuigahama Beach. The temple is also called Botamochi-dera based on the story that a Botamochi rice ball covered with Azuki bean paste - is responsible for the miracle that saved the life of Nichiren while he was being taken to his execution. Joeiji holds a memorial service for Nichiren. The objects of worship here are statues of Priest Nichiren, sacred tablets, and statues of Buddha and Nichiei.
