Shuzen-ji ［修禅寺］: A temple of the Sōtō school of Zen in Izu in Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. It was founded by Gōrin (b. 767), a disciple of Kōbō, the founder of the Japanese True Word (Shingon) school. Another account identifies the founder as Kōbō himself. Thus it originally belonged to the True Word school. In the Kenchō era (1249–1256), Dōryū (Chin Tao-lung), a Zen priest from China, lived at this temple and converted it to the Rinzai school of Zen. At the end of the fifteenth century, Shuzen-ji was converted to the Sōtō school.
