The full name of the temple is Naritasan Fukagawa Fudo-do. It was bult in 1881 as a branch office of parental Naritasan Shinshoji in Chiba. One of the specialities of this temple is "Goma-Kito, sacred fire practice that originally came from India.. Another unique spot is to walk through a corridor of crystal glass statures. After going through all, you can remove and eliminate worldly concerns, earthly passion and desires so that you will feel so refleshed. I must say it is simply so exotic.
Ryogoku is a mecca of Sumo. There are only three-times sumo tournaments at Ryogoku Stadium in a year. It is difficult to watch the games but at least we can see the ring and its museum. You can buy some souvenier related to Sumo here. Please note you can not meet Sumo wrestlers here. Then, we will have a lunch here.
