Recently, I wrote about Kishibojin-do Temple. This temple has a “parent temple” which stands nearby.
The parent temple is Homyo-ji which is said to be built in 810. (Kishibojin-do was built in 1578.)
This is a close-up photo of the roof of the gate. Chinese characters are curved. 威光山 or Ikozan is a name of the mountain. In Japan, many temples has a name of the mountain as a part of their official names.
Address: 15-20 Zoshigaya 3-chome, Toshima-ku, Tokyo.
Another temple near here, Genjoin has a small shrine inside. This temple is said to be built during Edo era which is 17th-18th century.
Address: 6-16 Minami Ikebukuro 3-chome, Toshima-ku, Tokyo
One more historic place in this area is Otori Shrine.
This shrine was originally built inside Kishibojin-do in 1712. It was removed to the current place in the late 19th century.
