Ichigan Fudo 一願不動 One Wish Fudo
(いちがんふどう)
sometimes written
ichigan Fudo 一眼不動尊 "Fudo with one eye"
- see below -

Ichigan, you make one promise or wish and when this is fulfilled, you come back to the temple, make a thank you prayer and offer a wooden votive tablet (ema). Then you can then make your next wish. So be sure to wish for something that can be fulfilled within reason ...


Here are two samples from the
Shikoku Fudo Pilgrimage to 36 Fudo Temples.

At the temple Daiyu-Ji (Daijuuji) 太融寺
Kita, Osaka 大阪市北区太融寺町3

This temple is famous for the history of Minamoto no Tooru 源融 and Emperor Saga Tenno.
Kobo Daishi built this temple on the strong wish of Emperor Saga in 821.
chokugan, the strong vow or promise, and temples built on the behest of an emperor are often called "chokuganji" ちょくがんじ【勅願寺】.
The main statue of this temple was a Kannon with thousand arms, shown only once a year on January 18.
The large photo shows the old statue of Fudo Myo-O before the war. It is lost now. The hall for this "one wish Fudo" had also been built on behest of Emperor Saga.
Many people come here, make one vow or wish, walk around the statue once or sometimes even one hundred times.

江戸の五色不動のうちの目黄不動は、一般には江戸川区平井の最勝寺か台東区三ノ輪の永久寺とされているが、当院とする説もある。
寺伝によれば江戸開府以前の創建で、かつては麹町平川町(平河町)にあったという。万治元年(1658)、幕府の命により麻布六軒町の現在地に移転した。当時の住職は中野の宝仙寺の住職を兼ねていた玄海法印であった。
玄海法印は新しい境内地が狭かったため、近くの沼を埋め立てて境内を拡張することを願い出て許可された。
ところがこの沼には悪蛇が数多く住み着き、近くの住民を悩ませていた。そこで玄海が、先祖である武田信玄が所持していた十一面観音を本地仏として稲荷大明神を勧請し、七日七夜の調伏の祈祷を行ったところ、水面に長さ2丈(約6メートル)の巨大な悪蛇の死骸が浮き上がった。人々は玄海の法力に驚き、喜んで寺院の普請に協力したと伝えられる。
また、境内近くの池で洗い物をしていた夫人が神憑りとなり、稲荷神を不動院の境内に祀れば、必ず祈願を成就させ、火を防ぐと託宣した。そこで社殿を建立して祀られたのが児稲荷大明神であり、今も境内の一角に祀られている。
明治の初め、不動院の住職となった高野山の山科俊海師は、日本橋小伝馬町の牢獄の跡地で燐火が燃えるのを見た。俊海師はこの地の浄化を祈念し、寺院の建立を発願した。大倉喜八郎(大倉財閥の祖)、安田善次郎(安田財閥の祖)といった有力者などの支援も受け、明治8年(1875)大安楽寺を創建した。
現在も大安楽寺と不動院は兼帯であるため、不動院が留守の時は大安楽寺で納経を受け付けてもらえる。

- quote
滝谷不動明王寺 Takidani-fudou-myouou-ji
Takidani Fudo Myo-o Temple belongs to the Shingon Shuchizan school of Buddhism, and is located in Tondabayashi, Osaka.
Takidani Fudo Myo-o Temple is counted as one of three large Fudo in Japan. Praying at the temple is reputed to help prevent or cure eye diseases. As a result, the temple is also known as 'God of Eye' and 'Fudo of Sprout'.

The priest Kukai established the temple in 821. In 1463, it was moved to its present place. The temple's principal image is of Acala. The statues to Kongara and Seitaka are said to have been created by Kukai himself. These images are all designated as important cultural assets.

Monthly on the 28th day, a festival is held at Takidani Fudo Myo-o Temple to which over 30,000 people gather.

Like this sign, reading “Tell a lie and I’ll rip out your tongue!”

- quote -
... Here’s where we get our first peek at hell. It’s a disclaimer to parents reading, “We opened this temple of hell to teach children right from wrong and the value of life… Don’t use it indiscriminately to scare your kids into listening to what you say.”
... If you tell lies, this is supposedly where you will end up. If your sins are of a different variety, they say you will see what hell will be like for you if you look into this mirror. ...

ichigan Fudo 一眼不動尊 "Fudo with one eye"

With two eyes, Fudo sees very clearly all the bad points of a human, with one eye he sees only half and can thus extend his benevolence and mercy to more people.
