Profile

I grew up in Nara and entered training at Koyasan in Shingon sect at the age of 15. I am the 3rd generation priest from my grandfather's. At the age of 25, I became the priest at the Chorakuji Temple and over half a century has passed. I like Shimoda and am chief priest to the present. From the age of 33, I also accepted a role of the Social Welfare Committee and serve as an official of the National Council for Social Welfare.

Comment

Religion and welfare have the same regard to removing anxiety and making a safe and enjoyable society. The mission of the chief priest is to continue and relay to coming generations. I always serve my religeous duty with incense and candle in my temple.
