Naritasan Nagoya Betsuin Temple

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.
