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.

  • 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.
