Temple

"This temple is a special head temple of Toji Shingon Buddhism. Located a one-minute walk from Shin-Nagata Station on JR and subway lines, the temple is center for Kshitigarbha worship and is known as the ""Nagata no Ojizo-san."" The temple's main building, kitchen, and main gate were destroyed in the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake of 1995, but today these structures have been rebuilt. The temple's principal object of worship is a statue of Kshitigarbha. A statue of the great monk Kobo Daishi and a statue of Samantabhadra are enshrined at the front of the main temple building on the right and left sides, respectively; a figure of Acala is also enshrined in the Gomado hall. Each month on the 28th, the day of Acala, a goma stick burning ceremony is held to pray to Acala."

          Hyogo prefecture stretches from the north coast to the south coast on the western end of the popular Kansai region, encompassing verdant mountains, urban beaches, and fantastic historical sights. The prefecture’s main attractions lie along the south coast at Kobe, the prefectural capital, a pretty harbor city best known for its production of the renowned Kobe beef, and Himeji, the home of Himeji Castle, one of the country’s most beautifully preserved feudal castles, perched magically atop a hill.
