It is a temple of Soto sect of Buddhism. Oda Nobuyuki, the 3rd son of Oda Nobuhide (the father of the famous warlord, Oda Nobunaga) established this temple to pray for the repose of his father's soul. In its site, gorinto (a gravestone composed of five pieces piled one upon another) is built. Today, Toganji is widely known as the temple of Benzaiten (a Goddess of eloquence, music and art) and show-business personalities visit and pray for a better performance. This temple possesses several temple treasures in the motif of men and women united in conjugal acts including the so-called Sleeping Benzaiten. A 10-meter high statue, the Great Buddha of Nagoya, was erected in 1987.
