Sukyo Mahikari Temple in Takamatsu for Japan Travel Packages (

Sukyo Mahikari is a religion (some people and cultures consider it a "cult", others a "religion").  It is considered a "New Religion" because is was founded fairly recently in 1959 by Kotama Okada, a Japanese national.  Sukyo Mahikari has centers in more than 100 countries and was registered on June 23, 1978 by Keishu Okada as part of an amicable settlement following the passing of Kotama Okada.  Sukyo Mahikari announced in 2013 that it had more than a million members, though this has not been verified.
