Overview It is a temple of the Buzan school of Shingon sect, and is called Ashasan Fukuju-in temple. The principal image is Fudo Myoo considered to be an invaluable Buddhist statue. The temple's old register says that it was founded by Keiyu, who was the highest priest and died in 1683, and then, his disciple Jikei revived it. Their tombstones are quietly standing in the graveyard of successive chief priests near the temple gate. The main hall was destroyed by air raids during the Pacific War in 1946, but was rebuilt in 1978. There is a kindergarten in the precincts now, and it became a lively place that is filled with a cheerful voice of the children every day. In addition, it is also one of the temples of the Iko Seven Lucky Gods, and on New Year's Eve, it is lit up and lights a sacred fire to pray for warding off evil called "Yakuyoke Goma-kigan". The Seven Lucky Gods Tour is held for 7 days from New Year's Day, and two gods among them "Jurojin and Fukurokuju" are open to the public in the temple.​ ​
