It is known as a holy place of refuge for all the women who have certain relationship issues. Whoever is frustrated with their spouse and want to get rid of their unhappy wedding Mantokuji Temple is the place for you.
The Lavatory Diety
Yes, it is true. In the history of marriages in Japan, women use to write their aspirations of divorce on a piece of paper and flush it in the lavatory of Mantokuji temple. There is a belief that toilet of the temple will make the wish come true especially when it is related to unhappy marital bonds.
The Lavatory deity carries two traditions with it. The white toilet is for breaking up the relationships. Whereas, the black one is for making ties stronger.
Power of toilet deity
No matter how awkward it may sound but as per Japanese spirituality, God is present in everything even if its a toilet. It is not only known to fulfil the wishes of divorce but also takes care of the health and childbirth. Moreover, many people use it as the rear lavatory. However, since the toilets in the temple are worshipped, there is no such usage anymore.
