Katsuoji Temple (勝尾寺) was formerly written as "勝王寺" (meaning "temple that surpasses any kings") because it was said that Buddhist prayers exceeded the Imperial power of the time. Later, since "王" (king) was replaced with "尾" (a kanji character with the same sound as "王") to show constraint, the temple has been referred to as Katsuoji Temple "勝尾寺." Supreme rulers in various periods in history had worshipped in Katsuoji Temple to pray for fortune in war and it is still known as a the temple of good luck at games.
