The small town of Narita with winding streets and rows of stalls selling good luck charms is home to the Narita-san ('Narita mountain') Shinshō-ji ('New victory temple') Shingon Buddhist temple. Dedicated to Fudō myōō ('Unmovable Wisdom King'), who is depicted holding a sword and rope and surrounded by flames.

The Shinsho-ji temple was established in 940 and over the years has been expanded to include several uniquely designed buildings with the Narita-san Park (16.5 hectares) added in 1928. The main temple area has a large three-storied pagoda built in 1712 and the best building by far is an impressive Tahōtō pagoda built on the top of a hill with gorgeous views of the surrounding landscape.
