  • Very close to meguro station! Found when on my ay from gajoen to the station. The slope is ething though! Lol
  • About a five-minute walk from Meguro station and en route to Meguro Gajoen, this Buddhist temple, built in 1662, is infamous as the starting point of a deliberately lit fire that destroyed most of Tokyo, then known as Edo, in 1772. The alleged arsonist, from a vegetable store family, has her tomb located inside the temple. The fire's victims are represented by 500 small Buddha statues, depicted arhats, on the temple grounds. Daien-ji Temple is also one of Edo's three major Daikoku temples.
  • Unexpected temple on our way to Meguro station. Lovely temple, beautiful statues.
  • Quiet temple surrounded by high rises. Good place for a break to forget Tokyo's hustle bustle. Located in the middle of a very steep slope, it is also a way to catch your breath for a minute!
  • Beautiful little shrine close to the Meguro station.
