Izu Exile

To Izu (22Kb)

After the Matsubaga-yatsu, Priest Nichiren left Kamakura for Shimousa to stay at the house of Toki Jyonin, briefly. In Next Spring, he went back to Kamakura City again.

Kamakura Bakufu wondered why he was still alive and wild believers of Nembutsu-shu seemed to be going to attack him again. Bakufu arrested him without any crime to make him go in exile, which is called the Honan of Izu.
