Travel Guide - Shobo-in Temple (Tobi-Fudoson)


Established in 1530, Shobo-in Temple is commonly called "Tobi-Fudoson (Flying Deity)" because the temple is famous for its Fudo guardian god of aviation safety. A legend says when a temple's priest visited Yamato (today's Nara) for ascetic training with the wooden image of the deity, he flew back here from Yamato within a single day. Since then, the deity has been believed to fly to those in trouble and save them from suffering. Today, many worshippers visit here to pray for safe airline journeys. The temple's unique airplane-shaped charm is very popular.
