Tagesan Fudoson

This temple served as the favored place of worship of the Utsunomiya clan for generations.
It is known as a place where worshippers can pray to Fudo for safety from fire and success in business.

Tagesan Fudoson's wooden statue of a seated Fudo was crafted using the technique of yosegi, a type of traditional Japanese marquetry, and is believed to date back to the late Heian Period.

Utsunomiya, the most populous city in Tochigi, is about an hour from Tokyo by Shinkansen, and serves as a major transportation hub for the different regions of the prefecture. In addition to being known for its famous Gyoza (pan-fried dumplings), Utsunomiya is called the “city of jazz and cocktails”, as there are numerous venues for hearing live jazz music, and the bartenders are quite skilled, so there are plenty of options for enjoyable nightlife.
