On August 4, 1945(Showa 2), the Shingon sect Busan school church was established and was commonly known as Shingon-ji Temple.
In July 1928(Showa 3), the temple was hit by the Great Mibuka Fire, which destroyed more than 400 of the town's 600 houses, but the main image of Fudo Myoo was saved from destruction.(The chief priest at the time evacuated with Fudo Myoo, which was thought to be 80 kilograms in weight, in the midst of the raging fire.)
In 1948(Showa 23), with the increase in the number of parishioners, the main hall was built, and in 1949(Showa 24), the official name of the temple was approved.
Temple treasures: There are six transoms depicting the life of Kobo-Daishi by Kumazo Oshima, who was evacuated to Bibuka during the war.
