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."
