Takahata Fudoson高幡不動尊

4.0

Temple

This temple located in the Takahata district of Tokyo’s Hino City is the special head temple of the Chisan sect of Shingon Buddhism and its official name is “Takahatasan Myooin Kongo-ji Temple.” It was opened in the early Heian Period (794–1185) by Ennin (Jikaku Daishi) as a sacred ground for Tokan Chingo. Attracting faith as one of the Kanto region’s three largest fudo temples, it retains many important cultural properties such as the Fudo-do hall and its principal image of Fudo-myo’o (Acala), and the Niomon (Deva gate) with Kongo rikishi (Deva kings) statues on either side. The stone monument and bronze statue of Shinsengumi member Hijikata Toshizo (a military leader who helped Japan modernize in the transition from feudalism known as the Meiji Restoration of 1868) is another highlight. The temple is visited by many worshipers for hatsu-mode (New Year’s visit), the temple festival held on the 28th of each month, and the mountain hydrangea season in June.

          The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It's hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world's tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you're in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
