GPS art of a dragon drawn at one of Tokyo’s most popular Hatsumode spot🐉✨
This GPS art course allows visitors to draw the Chinese character for the Chinese zodiac animal “dragon (龍)” around the Dainichido Hall of Takahata Fudoson, a Hatsumode (New Year’s visit) spot in Tokyo that is associated with dragons.
At Kongoji Temple of Takahata Fudoson in Hino City, Tokyo, there is a “Nariryu” (a dragon that cries) that is said to echo when you clap your hands. It is said that if you clap your hands under the dragon depicted in the ceiling painting of Dainichido, your wish will come true. The temple is also known as a power spot with the “Osunabumiishi” stone, which is said to bring the same benefits as having toured 88 temples on Shikoku Island.
Although it is a popular spot for worshippers, it is expected to be very crowded in 2024, the year of the dragon. Please try to visit as a New Year’s visit to avoid the density🐉✨
