Head Temple Taisekiji is located in Japan at the foot of Mt. Fuji. The land was donated by Nanjo Tokimitsu, a great lay patron of Nichiren Shoshu in the 13th century.
Nanjo Tokimitsu is proudly looked upon as a model of faith in True Buddhism. In the 13th century, he helped found the Head Temple Taisekiji and built a base to expand the propagation of the Law. His personal residence, (now) Myorenji Temple, became a branch of the Head Temple. [You can see his house/Myorenji Temple in the bottom left of the watercolor panorama.

You can find more details about Nanjo Tokimitsu on pages 413-418 in The Doctrines and Practice of Nichiren Shoshu.
