Hondo (Main hall)

The current Main Hall (Hondo) was originally the Main Hall of Higashi Honganji Yao Betsuin. In May 1945, Azabusan Zenpukuji lost its Garan (the temple's central building) to the air raids of World War II. In 1961, the Main Hall of Higashi Honganji's Yao Betsuin, which was established by Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of the Tokugawa Shogunate, was offered to Azabusan Zenpukuji and rebuilt as its Main Hall. It underwent major renovations in 2008 and was designated as a Tangible Cultural Property of Minato-ku the following year.
