The beginning of the Migawari Fudoson

During the Edo period, Yuten Shonin travelled around the country in pilgrimage to help people in need. He healed many and was revered.
In 1890 Kishu Shonin, founder of this temple, met Yuten Shonin and decided to convert to the Fudoson. In 1904 he was trained by the head monk of the Naritasan temple and when he opened his own temple the line of visitors went on over the Futago Tama ricer and all the way to Seta.
In 1964 the great monk Seishuu built the main hall and at its opening the line of monks, worshipers and artisans went on for many kilometers.
Okada Yushu, head monk of the Daigoji presided to the ceremony of the completion of the temple、and the celebratory fires went on for days.
The temple received the honorary name exceptional head temple from the Daigoji, the head temple of the Shingon shu Daigo sect.
A road was built and it became easy to access the temple.
In 1967, together with the Fusdoson of Musashi and Sagami, the great monk Seishuu started the Buso pilgrimage of the 28 temples.
On May 1969 for the year of the rooster the temple hosted its first celebration to show its secret Buddha.
The great monk Yushuu founded the branch temple in Atami.
