  1. 秋田県能代市の本澄寺であると仮定して、新潟県佐渡市の名刹、妙照寺とともに、日蓮宗のお寺です。妙照寺の信徒の方々が、あるいは北東北の日蓮宗のお寺を巡っていたのではないでしょうか。
    なお、能代市の本澄寺は現存します。ただ、現在の本澄寺は、少なくとも1949年より前の住所とは違い新しく建立されています。これは1949年2月20日の能代の大火が関係していると考えられます。この大火は大規模で、被害範囲は当時の市街地のおよそ42%に達し、住家1,295棟、非住家942棟が焼失したそうです。すぐに『復興都市計画』が立てられ、区画整理が行われ、焼失区域内の寺院・墓地は市街地外に移転したということです。この結果、能代市内の寺と墓地は、現在の場所にほぼ集約されることになったと聞きました。ただ、明確なことは、市役所で市史を調べる必要があります。

      Assuming that it is Honzumiji Temple in Noshiro City, Akita Prefecture, it is a Nichiren Shoshu temple, along with Myoshoji Temple, a famous temple in Sado City, Niigata Prefecture. It is likely that the believers of Myosho-ji Temple or the Nichiren Shoshu temples in the northern Tohoku region were touring the area.

      Honchoji Temple in Noshiro City is still in existence. However, the current Honchoji temple is a new building, differing from the address before1949. This is thought to be related to the big fire in Noshiro on February 20, 1949. This fire was so large that it covered about 42% of the city, destroying 1,295 residential buildings and 942 non-residential buildings. A “City Reconstruction Plan” was immediately formulated, the area demarcated, and the temples and cemeteries in the burned area were relocated outside the city. As a result, I heard that the temples and cemeteries in Noshiro were almost all concentrated in the current location. However, for clarification, we need to check the city history at the city hall.

    能代 本澄寺 の旗 ー右側に、 佐渡霊場と左側に、 参拝団と書いてあります。能代 本澄寺 は日蓮宗で、妙照寺も日蓮宗 です。ここに写っている前列の旗の向かって左2人目方、他にも写っていますね。005, 006, 007, 011, 012, 013, 014 の方 と、同じ人ではないかなと思います。

    We received a comment from Kumiko Sakota on FB:
    On the flag of Noshiro Honcho-ji Temple, on the right side it says, Sado Sacred Sites, and on the left side it says, Worshippers. Noshiro Honcho-ji Temple is a Nichiren Shoshu sect, and Myosho-ji Temple is also a Nichiren Shoshu sect. The second person on the left of the flag in the front row appears to be the same woman as the woman in the photo: 005, 006, 007, 011, 012, 013, 014.

      Honcho-ji Temple and Noshiro is part of the larger writing on the white banner held by the group.
