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.
