Daikyoji Temple (Shibamata Taishakuten)

Temple
A temple of the school of Nichiren Buddhism in Shibamata, Katsushika City, Tokyo which was founded in 1629 during the Kan-ei period. As the Taishakuten faith increased during the Edo period, it became familiarly known as “Shibamata Taishakuten” and the number of visitors to the shrine increased together with faith in Koshin, “Koshin Shinko”. It is said that Saint Nichiren carved the principal object of worship at the temple, the deity, Taishakuten. In addition to the magnificent Nitenmon Gates at the Teishakuten entrance, Tamonten (Vaisravana) (Bishamonten), Jikokuten (Dhrtarastra), Komokuten (Virupaksa) and Zochoten (Virudhaka) are also present. There are many highlights such as the gardens and the large temple reception hall which is 495 meters squared (150 tsubo -Japanese unit of land measurement). It is famous also as the temple connected with Tora san’s movie “Otoko wa Tsurai yo”.
