Nittaiji is certainly one of Nagoya's "great" temples despite being only a century old. Originally established to house some of the remains of the historical Buddha -- discovered in Northern India towards the end of the 19th century, the site is of enormous importance to the Buddhist community. But what is commonly overlooked is that these remains are not kept within the temple precinct itself. They are located in an enclosure some distance to the north east and housed beneath a beautiful white stone stupa. Special permission is required in order to enter this space which is attached to the huge Nittaiji cemetry.
