Baoling Temple

Horinji is a temple related to "Satomi Tanehime", which is said to be a model of the main character "Satomi Fusehime" that appears in the feature-length novel "Nanso Satomi Hakkenden" by Takizawa Bakin.

During the Warring States period, the eldest daughter of the XNUMXth Satomi Yoshitaka, Satomi Yoshitaka, married Daitaro, the eldest son of Masaki Tokishige, the lord of Otaki Castle.In the XNUMXth year of Eiroku, her husband, Daitaro, died in the Second Kokufu Taisen Battle.
It was when Daitaro was XNUMX years old and Tanehime was XNUMX years old.Tanehime became a nun with sorrow, and after that, she arrived here and planted a nun's residence (Azumai).It is said that in August of the XNUMXth year of Eiroku, he opened the Horinji Temple with the Shichido Garan and prayed for the souls of his late husband.
At one point, he founded Tanerinji Temple in Awa Shirahama and spent his time there, but he lived his life again at Horinji Temple and died here at the age of XNUMX.
Tanehime is said to have been a model of Fushihime since the announcement of "Nanso Satomi Hakkenden".I imagine he was a beautiful princess because he became the main character of the story.
