In May 1973(Showa 48), the temple was opened in Higashi-tsukisamu, Toyohira-ku, and was official name of a temple by the head temple Chishaku-in.
In 1977(Showa 52), when the main hall was too small for and we were thinking of moving, a Bupposo (konohazuku) came to live near the main hall.
The Bupposo began to chirp with To the beat of the drum of sutra and when the sutra was over, he flew away to the eastern sky.
