- Established: Nicchô
- Other Names: 長慶山 (choukei-zan), 大行寺 (daigyou-ji)
- Japanese: 大巧寺 (daigyou-ji)
The temple's name was originally written with the characters 「大行寺」, but it is said that the name was changed to 「大巧寺」 after Minamoto no Yoritomo held a strategy meeting at the temple, and went on to win a victory in battle.
The chief deity worshipped at Daigyô-ji is Ubusume, goddess of childbirth. The head priest of the temple, Nittô, established Ubusume as such in 1532, in conjunction with a memorial service he organized for the wife of Akiyama Kageyu, who had died in childbirth.
