I am an English guide in charge of
Fukagawa Fudo-do and Tomioka Hachimangu.
|Below is the sightseeing spot I provide the guiding service.|
In this tour, you will visit Fukagawa Fudo-do, a Buddhist temple, and Tomioka Hachimangu, a Shinto shrine. You can see and experience the characteristics of and differences between Buddhism and Shintoism including the different worship manners.
Fukagawa Fudo-do Temple
Fukagawa Fudo-do is a temple dedicated to Fudo-myoo, the god of fire.
This temple has the innovative mantra design in Sanskrit letters on the outside wall of the Main Hall. Inside the Main Hall, you will experience a mysterious fire ritual, known as the Goma Rite. It is a secret fire practice of “Shingon Esoteric Buddhism” to purify people’s wildly desires and pray for our wishes.
Tomioka Hachimangu Shrine
Tomioka Hachimangu has two special characteristics compared with other shrines in Japan.
One is that there are various monuments to the sumo wrestlers there, including the Monument to Grand Champions (Yokozuna) because this shrine is known as the birthplace of the professional sumo tournaments.
The other is the most expensive portable shrine in Japan. The portable shrine is decorated by jewels and gold.
Location: Koto-city, Tokyo. Five minutes’ walk from Monzen-Nakacho Station, Subway Tozai Line (T12) or Oedo Line (E15).
