  • Established: 1451
  • Japanese: 長寿寺 (Chôju ji)

Chôju-ji was a Buddhist temple established in Naha in 1451. It was associated with a nearby branch shrine of Ise Shrine,[1] and on at least one occasion in the early 18th century exchanged letters with the temple of Seiken-ji (near Sunpu, in what is today Shizuoka prefecture), following the 1710 death of Ryukyuan official Nakanishi chikudun and his burial at Seiken-ji.[2]
