Fukagawa Fudodo Temple

Fukagawa Fudodo Temple

Ofudo-sama (Fudo Myohoh) of Fukagawa, visited by many people from old times and the present

Fukagawa Fudodo Temple is Tokyo annex of Naritasan Shinshoji Temple in Narita-shi, Chiba. Since 1703, this temple originated from the dekaicho (moving the principal image of Buddha outside of temple for exhibition to worship) which was often practiced in Tomioka Hachimangu Shrine within the precincts of Eitaiji Temple. The completion of the current main temple (new main temple) was celebrated in September 2011. It has an impressive Fudou-myoou mantra (wall with mantra letters) surrounding the building. These powerful prayer rituals that use fire are held at appointed times every day and are a must-see.
