Daisho-ji Temple (犬山成田山)
A branch temple of the Buddhist Daihonzan Naritasan Shinshoji Temple in Narita City, Chiba Prefecture. The temple was erected in 1953 for believers in the Nagoya area and is the largest temple dedicated to Acala in the Chubu area. The temple’s principal object of worship is a figure of Acala holding a sharp sword in his right hand to cut away worldly desires. In his left hand, the statue holds a lariat to tie to the legs of those who have turned their backs on the teachings of Buddhism and drag them back to the path of righteousness. On New Year’s day, a special gomaku ceremony is held in which cedar wood is burned in offering to Acala. A variety of other events are also held at the temple. The closest station is the Meitetsu Inuyamayuen Station, a 10 minute walk away from the temple.

Aichi is a prefecture of great natural beauty with Nagoya city at its heart, a busy hub home to a labyrinth of underground shops and the 17th-century Nagoya Castle. Castles are easy to find in this history-rich prefecture, but the highlight for history buffs has to be the Museum Meiji-mura, where preserved buildings from the turn of the 20th century are displayed in all their grandeur in an outdoor museum.
