Zōshigaya Kishimojin-do, Toshima

(4.1/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Tucked away in a quiet, residential part of the city, you'll find the ancient shrine of Zōshigaya Kishimojin-do. The present complex was constructed in 1664 around the shrine, where worshippers pray to the goddess Kishimojin, a deity from India who protected the birth of babies and the nurturing of children. Look out for the large, picturesque gingko trees, planted as a natural monument on the site by the city's metropolitan government.

  • Japan's oldest candy shop and retro feel. From Toei Arakawa line Kishibojin station and a few minutes walk, you walk had one, area of South pond bag out on foot is the best.

  • 地點近池袋;此行因雑司ヶ谷手創市集前往神社一帶逛遊;這個神社有個勸世又慈愛的傳說故事;建築非常特別也列入了東京文化財。若是電車鐵道迷的朋友;可搭乘都電荒川線在「鬼子母神前」下車步行抵達;荒川線是東京難得見到行進在路上的電車;車體小巧可愛、有多列不同造型的電車;另外也可地下鉄副都心線在「雑司が谷」下車。

  • Nice Buddhist temple in Ikebukuro. I particularly enjoy the festivals here...
  • deviate little bit away from Ikebukuro station and you will see small residential area. Then this will greet you; calm and quiet temple
  • Very unique temple that seems dedicated to some owl-god :) I was impressed with a huge ancient tree surrounded by a path of tori.
  • Endless Kishibojin hospital had to throw this away now. It's the hospital I was born. Since I heard it moved soon afterwards, but later watched the hariti was born here is one of my roots. Her mother died and have not been recently!. You want to go when things calm down a little bit again!.
