The bright red timbers and green copper roof of Inuyama Narita-san Temple make it one of the most photographed temples in Aichi Prefecture. The temple is a branch of the Shingon sect Narita-san Temple, based in Narita, near Tokyo’s international airport. Shingon Buddhism is a form of esoteric Buddhism that believes enlightenment can be attained in one’s lifetime through spiritual practice of mantras. Associated with the priest, Kobo Daishi, and the many temples he founded on holy Mt. Koya, Inuyama Narita-san is situated on a steep hill providing picturesque views of the Kiso River, Inuyama Castle, and on clear days, the skyscrapers of Nagoya-City.

The temple, near Inuyama Yuen Station, was founded in 1953 and contains a principal image of the powerful deity, Fudo Myou, holding a sword in his right hand, and a rope in his left. Almost every month a number of special events are held at the temple, including festivals and important events on the Buddhist calendar. The temple is popular with drivers across Aichi, as it offers prayers and amulets for safe motoring.
