Located in Tomioka, Koto-ku, near Monzen-Nakacho Station on the subway line, this temple is known as Fukagawa Fudo-do or Fukagawa Fudoson, and is a branch temple of Naritasan Shinshoji Temple of the Chizan School of Shingon Buddhism.

The temple enshrines Dainichi Nyorai as its deity. The temple’s divine virtues include the fulfillment of wishes, protection from bad luck, academic achievement, traffic safety, good fortune, and increased monetary fortune.

On the Hatsumode New Year’s holidays, goma (goma) rituals are held on the first day of the New Year. Many visitors come to the shrine to pay their respects along the path called “Jinjo Fukagawa Goyo Dori” and the nearby Tomioka Hachiman Shrine.

From the nearest station, Monzennakacho Subway Station is a one-minute walk from Exit 1.

There are about 20 parking spaces available, but it is often very crowded. The subway station is close by, so it is better to use public transportation.
