Shugen-ji Temple was formerly the residence of Shijo Kingo, who was a vassal of Ema Mitsutoki and such an unparalleled faithful believer of the religion of Nichiren that he made up his mind to die a martyr to Nichiren when he was persecuted in 1271.
Shoji Kingo was one of the four big supporting members of Nichiren.
In Edo period, his residence was remodeled into this temple as a holy place of the Nichiren sect.
