Jogyoji Temple, which moved to Takanawa Nihon-enoki (present-day Takanawa 1-27) in 1668, was originally a Nichiren-sect temple founded in Odawara, and until it moved to Isehara City in 1962, was a famous temple in the Takanawa district. Excavations were carried out at the site remains that revealed the existence of a temple preceding Jogyoji, as well as confirming the formation of the precincts and their spatial structure, history of the building of the cemetery, some of the activities and life of the temple, and its connection with samurai and aristocratic families including the shogun, as well as with writers and artists.
