A Pure Land Buddhist temple located in Higashi Ward, Nagoya City dedicated to Acala. The temple's grounds are host to many precious examples of Edo period architecture designated Cultural Properties by the city of Nagoya, including the main temple, sanmon triple gate, and bell tower. Each year during the Setsubun festival in February, dried beans are thrown from the main temple, and the temple grounds bustle with visitors come to see the spectacle.

Aichi Main Areas
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.
