  • It is a 3-minute walk from Taharamachi Station on the Tokyo Metro Ginza Line and is located at 2-chome, Ju-higashi-ku, Taito-ku. It is said to have been founded in 19 years (1591). There was a short approach, and the precincts which had been maintained neatly remained in the impression.

  • Located near Taharamachi Station on the Ginza Line, this temple was founded in 1591 by Nichigokami. In the precincts, in addition to "Kanozuka", which enshrined the white fox kumagaya inari and the script of rakugo, it was a temple with many attractions such as Yoshimi Inari, Brushzuka, and Nakamazuka, but it was easy to see and return to the temple because it was preparing for the funeral.
