  • I was walking near the Korakuen Garden on the side of the road "konjac Ebisu's." and stopped by I saw the stone pillars, carved in red letters. Devil in Red Devil Chapel and the grim-faced statue was stored. Since the sick were healed, it suffered from eye disease long ago, an old woman prayed to this large King Yama that seems gratuitous disconnect konyaku was the favorite, continued offering the devil statue. Konjac was laid today. It is a valuable cultural heritage support the devout faith of ordinary people.

  • Tokyo came to Temple sources "konjac levy" being koishikawa. Was laid konjac enma Hall ago, as the name suggests, comes on konjac and googled. And at the back of the Hall, demanding statues, enma dokuganryu the face is. In addition, precincts and Morisaki, Salina warehouse tout a Pan-Pacific Bell. Trees in the small urban oasis is also felt. The main hall is a building, is no. Access was (I) a 2-minute walk from Kasuga station on the Toei Mita line. Diagonally opposite Ramen "torpedo".
