One of the oldest temples in Kuwana, the Daifukudenji temple is said to have been founded by Prince Shotoku. It was originally located in Daifuku but was then moved to its current location in Higashi-Kata during the Edo era.
Every year, on the festival of Setsubun (3rd February), and on the 1st April, the Kuwana Shoten festival is held. Taking place over a period of two days, the festival is dedicated to the performance of Dai Kagura – a sacred Shinto music and dance performance.
