Nagoya-City Nittaiji Temple (Kakuozan)
Japan’s unique resting place of the Buddha Holy Remains
People may not know about Buddhist practices with much detail, but most of the world certainly heard about Buddha. Historians agree that he really existed, and that the burial ashes accidentally found in 1898 are really his. Enter Kakuozan Nittaiji Temple, a holy repository of part of the Buddha sacred remains that were given as gift to Japan from King Chulalongkon of Siam, the country now named Thailand.
