Cemetery Yet Again – Denzu-in Temple

Cemeteries have special solemn atmosphere and I cannot stop visiting there.  I have already wrote about 84 Thousand Images of Jizou God in YanakaYanaka Cemetery and Zoshigaya Cemetery.  And I will tell you one more in Denzu-in Temple.

The most important grave is that of Odai, the mother of Shogun Ieyasu who died in 1603.  She has a postmortem name, Denzu-in, which became the name of this temple.

Address: 14-6 Koishikawa 3-chome, Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo
