Gunma | 296, Hanadakamachi, Takasaki-shi

This temple enshrining Hokushin Chintaku Reifuson was established as a protective temple on the unlucky quarter of Maebashi Castle in the Edo period, and has been worshipped as one of Japan’s three most holy temples of Hoyoke (the protection for removing calamities related to direction). It is also famous as the first temple of fortune Dharma dolls. Many worshippers come to offer the first prayers of the new year in the beginning of the year, to ask for protection for removing calamities related to direction, and to look for Dharma dolls. The Shorinzan Nanakusa Festival Dharma Fair is held on January 6 and 7. The time of 2:00 a.m. on the seventh is considered a lucky day when Reifuson descended and the fair abounds with many people from the Eve Festival held on the sixth. This is Japan’s biggest Dharma Fair where prayers to remove calamities related to direction are solemnly held at the Reifu Hall in the main hall and the Dharma dolls shops and vendor stalls lined up in the precincts.
