石川精舎 (Jpn Ishikawa-shoja)

    The first Buddhist temple in Japan, built in what is presently Takaichi in Nara Prefecture. According to The Chronicles of Japan, the court official Soga no Umako built this temple near his residence in Ishikawa in 584 to enshrine a stone image of Bodhisattva Maitreya brought from the Korean state of Paekche.
