Stature of O-Tengu/Largest "Tengu" in Japan (Over 12 meters high)


Aranagi School was founded by Toda Yoki in 1900 (Meiji 33)
It's a kind of Shinto, but usually understood as a syncretization of Shinto with Buddhism.
Aranagi-kyo ceremony starts with Shinto purification prayer and ends with "Hannyashingyo"Buddhist sutra.
On the fire festival's day in December, many followers of Aranagi School
come and pray at Entsu-ji temple in Nagoya.
It's a must-see.
