That's a very nice video, Paul!

Kawasaki Daishi is also famous for its rituals fending off evil or protecting from accidents. Their "traffic safety sticker" (川崎大師 交通安全ステッカー) can be seen on many cars in Kanagawa and eastern Tokyo:

They also offer regular oharai services, Shinto car blessings:*



* Of course, oharai ceremonies are not restricted to cars. :)
