Kenchoji Temple

Kencho-ji, the first monastery in Japan devoted solely to Rinzai Zen practice, is number one of the Kamakura Five Mountain Zen temples, and the head of the Kencho-ji branch of Rinzai Zen Buddhism, with five hundred affiliated temples. Kencho-ji was founded in 1253 by the fifth Kamakura regent Hojo Tokiyori 北条時頼 (1227–1263), with the support of Emperor Gofukakusa 後深草 (r. 1246–1259). Tokiyori, who wished to establish a true Rinzai monastery in the city of Kamakura, the capital of the shogunate, invited the eminent Chinese Rinzai Zen master Lanxi Daolong 蘭溪道隆 (J. Rankei Doryu; 1213–1278) to serve as first abbot. Lanxi held that position until 1262, when he was appointed the eleventh abbot of Kennin-ji in Kyoto. Lanxi was succeeded by the Chinese master Wuan Puning 兀菴普寧 (1197–1276), but later returned as third abbot. Under Lanxi and subsequent abbots Kencho-ji became a renowned center of Zen training, with over one thousand monks in training. The monastic code written by Lanxi to guide the practice of his students is preserved as a National Treasure.
