Since the Hokkaido Development Commission was appointed in 1897(Meiji 2), many people from Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu have moved to Hokkaido to develop new lands.
According to the records of the time, the pioneering of Hokkaido, with its harsh natural environment, was not an easy task, and they experienced hardships that cannot be described in words.
In the midst of such hardships, more than 1,000 people who believed in O-Fudo-sama as a source of emotional support became the founders of Narita-san Shin-ei-ji Temple, which was established in 1885(Meiji 18) by inviting a branch of Fudo-sama from Naritasan Shinsho-ji Temple.
According to the official documents of the temple, a temporary hall was built at Minami 3jo Nishi 6chome and the main deity was consecrated there.
It was moved to Minami 7-jo Nishi 3-chome, Sapporo in 1887(Meiji 20).
official name of a temple Narita-san Sapporo Betsuin Shin-ei-ji in 1889(Meiji 22).
