Daihonzan Naritasan Kurume Temple

大本山成田山 久留米分院

The Daihonzan Naritasan Kurume Temple was founded in 1958 after part of the spiritual embodiment from the Daihonzan Naritasan Shinshoji Temple in Chiba Prefecture was given to the temple. It is famous for housing the Fudo Myo, or the Buddhist Vicarious Protector. The interior of the 62 meter (203 foot) tall statue of the Affectionate Mother Kannon (the largest such statue in Japan!) is an observation deck.
In recent years, the temple has also been able to boast of the 38-meter (125-foot) high Indian Village Heiwa Daibutsu Tower and Hall (a replica of the one in India’s Budh Gaya) constructed on its grounds. The tower is the only the second of its kind in the world, and the first in Japan!
