http://www.hogonin.jp/en/index.html
Hōgon-in (大亀山 宝厳院 Daikameyama hōgon'in), a subtemple of the Rinzai Zen head temple Tenryū-ji, was established in 1461 with support from the estate of Hosokawa Yoriyuki (1329-1392), a noted deputy of the shogun during the Muromachi period (1336-1573). Zen Master Seichū Eikō, a third-generation descendant of Zen Master Musō Soseki (the founder of Tenrū-ji), served as the temple’s first abbot.
