- Japanese: 本立寺 (honryuu ji)
A branch temple of the Ji sect temple Jôkômyô-ji, it was originally known as Godô-in, a reference to the five lords buried there. Graves for these five lords can also be found at Kannô-ji, a temple in Izumi City, Kagoshima prefecture. The Godô-in temple was renamed Honryû-ji during the time of the 19th clan head, Shimazu Mitsuhisa, and was expanded under the 18th (Shimazu Iehisa), 20th (Shimazu Tsunataka), and 21st (Shimazu Yoshitaka).
