Tozenji Temple Reviews
ここまで来るのに色々と長い距離のように感じてしまった。お地蔵さんだけを見る目的でも良いかもしれない。 more »It felt like a long distance to get here. It might be good for the purpose of seeing only jizo-san.
江戸六地蔵の一つがある浅草の東禅寺まで足を運んだ。東禅寺は、浅草寺・神社の中心街からはかなり離れたところにあり、徒歩で約30分もかかった。江戸六地蔵とは、江戸時代に、江戸市中から広く寄進者を得て、旅の安全と病気平癒を祈願して、江戸の出入口6か所の街道沿いに銅像の地蔵菩薩坐像を造立したものである。ここのお地蔵さんは第2番（1710年造立）で、想像より大きく、笠をかぶっているが、雰囲気は、品川寺のお地... more »We went to Tozen-ji Temple in Asakusa, one of the Edo Six Jizo. Tozenji Temple is quite far from the center of Sensoji Shrine, and it took about 30 minutes on foot. Edo Rokujizo is the one that the site bodhisattva image of the bronze statue was built along the highway of six entrances of Edo in the Edo period, in order to obtain the wide number of visitors from the Edo city, and to pray for the safety of the travel and the healing of the disease. Mr. Jizo here is the second (1710- founded) and is bigger than i imagined and wears a hat, but the atmosphere has the impression that it resembles The Jizo-san of Shinagawa-ji Temple. It was originally located along the old Oshu Highway, but it appears to have been relocated here in 1928 for urban planning. Because it is not in the highway now, the atmosphere of Edo Rokujizo is lacking for a moment. Next to Mr. Jizo, there was a statue of the founder and wife of kimuraya head office, famous as the inventor of "Anpan". It seems that the graves of the couple are here. It's a long way from the nearest station, so you'll have to go all the way to visit, but it might be a secluded temple where not many people go.
A small temple with a couple of small structures. Definitely worth stopping in at if you are near but perhaps not worth a special excursion.
Yet another beautiful temple well worth a visit.
