Kenmyo-ji Temple (Fukuchiyama City) (顕妙寺 (福知山市))

Origin and history
Seiryozan Sennyu-ji Temple was established in Fukuchiyama City on February 8, 1967 but the head priest at the time denied 67th head priest Nikken's position as High Priest on September 16, 1982, so was excommunicated for violating the regulations of the Nichiren Shohu Sect. However, his continued residence at Sennyu-ji Temple hindered the activities of the Nichiren Shoshu Sect in the Fukuchiyama City area, and it is for this reason that Kenmyo-ji Temple was established.
The head priest left the Nichiren Shoshu Sect for the Soka Gakkai (Value-Creation Society).
