Seigaku-in 0

Together with its history as a temple associated with Shugendo (a syncretic form of Buddhism), Seigaku-in is a registered National Tangible Cultural Property also known for its terakoya (temple-associated one-teacher elementary school) whose past pupils included Ekai Kawaguchi, the first Japanese person to go over the Himalayan mountains while seeking out Buddhist sutras at the turn of the 20th century.
