Choso-ji is Horisaki’s second most important temple and as such is worthy of your consideration. Choso-ji was built in 1629 by the second Lord Nobuhira. Located in a unique district of Hirosaki and also known as Zenringai, the temple is surrounded by 33 Zen Sotoshu temples, most of which are not accessible to the public. Choso-ji stands out from the crowd thanks to its gorgeous 16.2m high sanmon and a hall filled with wooden statues of the 500 disciples of Buddha!
