I knew of this temple as a popular cherry blossom viewing site in Funabashi but had never visited until now. It was around noon on a Saturday during a three day holiday in March. Normally the temple grounds and the neighboring park would be full of visitors with the cherry blossoms at 20-30% bloom, but because of the coronavirus outbreak visitors were sparse and there were only two food stalls this year. I entered the temple grounds from the east side. I later found that the proper route is from the south through the Nioumon Gate. The history of the temple belonging to the Shingon Buddhist sect can be traced back to the 15th century. According to the description on the temple grounds, prominent priests appeared in the dream of a priest passing by, advising him to dig out a statue of Fudoumyouou (Acala: a protective fire deity). When he dug out the statue he found the name of the sculptor Ennin, a high priest of the 8th century, and a spring appeared on the site (Otaki means "the sacred waterfall"). On the right of the main temple building which worships the statue of Fudoumyouou is an old wooden building which was the original main temple with a worn but still magnificent painted ceiling. The lady at the administration office told us to go through the Nioumon Gate on the south of the temple ground to view the spring from which Ebi River originates and flows south to the sea. I understand that during the Edo era this temple was in an area under direct government of the Tokugawa shogunate that people were only allowed to visit once a year in August. The view of the temple with the cherry blossoms was quite striking. It certainly was a worthwhile visit.

there is no other touristic attraction in the area so you can stop by only if you are around by chance and if you have not seen a temple before.I go there every New year as family live around and go for usual blessings.The carvings in the main temple are somehow nice but apart of it , it is a temple.I liked the festive dance the local volunteers do wearing masks during the new year.
