Chuko-ji Temple Reviews
忠綱寺は千代田線根津駅から徒歩3分くらいのところにある真宗大谷派の寺院です。6月に近辺の寺社を散策した時に参拝しました。夕方でしたので山門は閉まっていました。山門の外からの参拝です。この寺院は、徳川１６神将として知られる渡邊守綱の孫、忠綱が若くして亡くなったのを偲び、弟吉綱が1624年に建立したとのことです。駿河台の大火災に遭い現在の地、池之端に移ったとのことです。 more »Chungtsunaji temple is a temple of the Shinsei Otani school located about a 3-minute walk from Nezu Station on the Chiyoda Line. I visited the shrine in June when I took a walk around the temple and shrine. Because it was evening, the mountain gate was closed. It is a visit from outside the mountain gate. This temple was built in 1624 by his younger brother Yoshitsuna in memory of the death of Tadatsuna, the grandson of Moritsuna Watanabe, known as the Tokugawa 16 general. It is said that it encountered a large fire of Surugadai and moved to the present ground, Ikenobata.
