  • Sado Exile - 1271

    October 9, 2017

    On this day in 1271 Nichiren began his trip over the ocean to his place of exile after the failed execution at Tatsunokuchi.

    Sado Island is located off the northern coast of Japan. During the 13th century this was an extremely cold location. Exile to Sado was considered basically a death sentence, since few ever survived their banishment. Sado for Nichiren was not only a place of harsh climate, it also was a place where many people were antagonistic towards Nichiren, even so far as trying to kill him.
