Visit Notes

Fudōdō-yakata’s precincts are now the site of a new residential area and a temple, Meishōji, in the Terabe area of Toyota City, and no ruins remain of fortifications. Meishōji’s honourific mountain name (which all temples have even if they’re on flatland like Meishōji), is Fudōsan. Fudōdō means ‘Hall to the Immovable (Acala)’, Fudō-Myōō, ‘immovable wisdom king’, Acalanaatha, a Buddhist deity.
