- Japanese: 宝福寺 (Houfuku-ji)
Hôfuku-ji is a Buddhist temple in Shimoda which served for a time as lodgings for the Shimoda bugyô and as his temporary administrative office.
The temple was later the site of a notable meeting between Yamauchi Yôdô and Katsu Kaishû, and further boasts a statue of Sakamoto Ryôma, who stayed there for a time while on the run.
Okichi, a geisha or servant associated with Townsend Harris, is buried at Hôfuku-ji.
