Narita-san Temple Yokohama

Everyone can experience the ritual Homa, held daily.
Was opened in 1870 as a branch temple of Narita-san Shinshoji Temple,
located in Narita city (Chiba prefecture). New main temple building was
constructed in 2016. It is now barrier free building, and you don’t have to
take your shoes off – so everybody can easily visit here.

It is just 5-minute walk from JR Sakuragicho station. Follow this red
banner and you will never get lost.

Here is the Golden Hall. The current building was just completed in 2016,
and it is very beautiful. In the penetralia, behind the principal deity, Zodiac
guardian deities are set. Penetralia is also barrier-free, so move further
without taking your shoes off.

The flowers of four seasons (roughly 300 flowers) are drawn on the ceiling
of the Golden hall. The beauty at the moments when natural light reflects and
shines is breathtaking.

“Homa” is the Temple’s own ritual, served to make wishes of visitors come
true, when wood is burnt in front of principal deity and Acala figure. The
ritual is held 4 times a day (at 9, 11, 13 and 15 o’clock) and everyone can
seat in the main hall and prey with the Guru.

At the climax of Homa ritual Guru feeds wooden plates with wishes written
on them to the fire. The shadow of the flickering flame appears
on the ceiling, and the total atmosphere is rather solemn.

This is a plate to be burnt during Homa ritual. You can purchase it at 500 yen.

Purchase a wooden plate, write your wish and your name with a special pen and deposit to the reception desk. It will be burnt at the upcoming Homa ritual and it is said that your wish will come true.

Amulets are popular souvenirs. There are many types of them, depending in your wish, but the one for personal safety, the one for traffic safety and the amulet for overcoming difficulties are in Top 3.

Try o-mikuji fortune telling. First, shake the box with o-mikuji, pull one
thin rod from a small hole and check the number written on it.


There is one more box aside -open the drawer that has the same number as your rod and take one piece from inside. That will be your fortune.

横浜 成田山

千葉県成田市にある大本山・新勝寺の直系の別院。1870年、横浜開港に伴い発展した地元の不動信仰の高まりに応じて開山。2015年、新本堂が完成。毎日4回、定時に行われる成田山独特の儀式「護摩」に加え、金色の内装と四季の花々をあしらった天井画は、目を見張る美しさ。ご本尊の不動明王は、京都・醍醐寺の開祖者である理源大師の御作と伝わる。また、バリヤフリー建築で、靴を履いたまま参詣できる。
