Officially called Meishozan Toshoji Temple, Sogo Reido Sanctuary is a Shingon Buddhist temple constructed for the purpose of memoralizing those who died in battle when the shogun Saka-no-ue-no Tamuramaro subjugated the Emishi people of northern Japan around the end of the 8th century.
A range of exhibits on general Japanese history and culture are displayed at this national history museum in the town of Sakura west of Narita Airport.
