The Kawasaki Daishi area traditionally flourished as a temple town developed around the famous Heikenji Temple constructed in 1128, as the head temple of the Chisan school of the Shingon sect Buddhism. The Kawasaki Daishi Heikenji Temple is especially well-known for “yakuyoke” apotropaic benefits. The 11th Shogun Ienari Tokugawa is recorded to have visited the temple in 1796 to receive “yakuyoke” blessings to ward off misfortune at the age of 24. The temple receives nowadays over 10 million visitors yearly.
