Togenukijizo Kogan Temple, Toshima

(2.8/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
According to the local beliefs at Togenukijizo Kogan Temple, you can protect yourself against diseases and lengthen your life by pouring water from a bamboo ladle over a bodhisattva statue, then wiping it with a towel. Set in the midst of the busy and colorful Sugamo shopping district, the Zen temple of the Soto sect abounds with statues of Togenuki jizo, “a thorn-extracting deity.” Many locals, notably senior women, visit the temple as part of their shopping routine, hoping to spot some local celebrities as they go. Watch monks beating drums, then browse through local shops offering curiosities including red socks and underwear, which can be used in rituals to keep your body's energy flowing efficiently.
