More on the Treasure of Senka
Link: “This site showed a pagoda which was one of the structure of Li-Hua Temple (where Nichiji established/stayed), and it was built in Yuan dynasty (around 1300) and was remodeled in Qing dynasty. The pagoda was the only facility left from the temple site of Nichiji’s. The article also said Nichiji was buried by the pagoda. Between 1984 and 1995 there were 130 groups about 2,400 Nichiren Shu members visited Li Hua Temple.” — Posted by Julie at December 21, 2007 09:23 PM
I came across a couple sources of information, in Japanese of course. I now have a picture of Nichiji’s mandala from Senka. Also, Nichiji’s portrait of Nichiren.

I also have a picture of a Mandala below. It is not in the Gohonzonshu that I can see. “東京保管庫蔵” indicates it is kept at Tokyo. It looked like it might have been a restoration of Nichiji’s Mandala that was found in China, It now appears certain that is not the case. The clean image below does appear to have been issued to Nichiji, I do not know if it is it directly related to the Treasure of Senka.
There is also some information in Japanese, below. There are also some videos about the Treasure of Senka. The Treasure of Senka is thought to be artifacts from Nichiji’s mission to China. See Also: A Byrd’s Eye View Nichiji – A True Stand-Alone Pioneer
