Also known as The Document for Entrusting Minobu-san. A document that Nichiren wrote at the residence of Ikegami Munenaka at Ikegami in Musashi Province (present-day Tokyo) on the thirteenth day of the tenth month, 1282, the day of his death. In it, he names Nikkoas his successor and chief priest of Minobu-san Kuon-ji temple. It also declares that those priests and lay believers who disregard its contents are acting in defiance of Nichiren's teachings. It is one of the two transfer documents defining the transmission of Nichiren's teachings, the other being The Minobu Transfer Document, written in the ninth month of 1282.
