Zenringai in Hirosaki is a unique district in Japan as where is packed with only Soto Zen temples. Including Choshoji Temple, 33 Zen (Sotoshu) temples stand in line like trees in wood, and therefore it is called as Zenringai (each word from Zen-rin-gai refers Zen, woods and district in Japanese).
In 1610, under Nobuhira, the second lord of the Tsugaru domain, the Zen temples were moved here from the entire Tsugaru region as a fortress on the southwest of the castle.
