Description

Temple Name

This temple takes its name after Fudomyoo, the immovable mantra king, a ferocious and menacing guardian deity who personifies compassion with firmness.  He has the power to crush all obstacles and troubles, destroy illusions, and defeat selfishness and weakness, helping devotees attain Buddhahood in the present lifetime.

Every morning there is a Buddhist ceremony held in the worship hall called “Asa-no-Otsutome”.  It usually starts at 7:00 in the morning and takes about 50 minutes.  Please feel free to join this peaceful Koyasan experience.
