Description

Narita's main attraction, this Shingon Sect Buddhist temple is dedicated to Fudo Myo-o, the god of fire. Built in the 10C, its impressive expansion began in the 17C, with the transfer of the capital to Edo, then continued with the popularisation of the figure of Fudo Myo-o by a famous kabuki theatre actor. Among the different buildings, note the pagoda with colourful ornaments which stands near the main hall. The temple is surrounded by a huge park offering numerous activities.
