  • It is a temple about a five-minute walk from Inarimachi Station. The front gate was closed, but I put it in from the side. The precincts were clean and well maintained.

  • It is a Jodo sect temple in Higashi-Ueno 6-chome, Taito-ku. It was built in Yushima in 1590 and was burned down by a large fire in the third year of the Ming calendar and moved to its current location. It is an impressive temple with a large copper bell. There are many temples in this area, and there are countless temples, but among them, the precincts are large and there is a splendid bell tower. Don't forget to visit Genkuji Temple when you walk around Ueno!
