Travel Tips for Takayama

Mahikari Main World Shrine

by Pixiekatten

From the village you will see the sweeping golden roof of Shukyo Mahikari cult’s main World Shrine. After visiting the shrine I was told it is a Doomsday cult however this was not anything I noticed when visiting the shrine. It is free to visit and walk the grounds of the shrine. Cult or not it is a very nice place and well worth a visit.

However I'm a curious person and had to get some more info when I arrived back home. This is what I found.

Mahikari on ABC.net
In Japanese, Mahikari means True Light and it is a new Japanese Religion which was founded by a Japanese businessman, Okada Kotama, after he received revelations from God in 1959. When he died in 1974 Mahikari split and his adopted daughter took control of Sukyo Mahikari.
According to the teachings of Mahikari many of our problems in life, such as illness or misfortune, are caused by evil or unhappy spirits possessing the living. The purification technique of Mahikari can help people get rid of these spirits.

Also visit the Mahakari website if you feel like reading more about evil spirits:

(This is however something I wouldn't recommend since I find cults rather scary! But a tip should always show both sides... )
