Buried in the precincts of this tiny temple is the artist Hogai Kano (1828-1888). Hogai belonged to the Kano School (long-time court favorites) of artists and was one of the last painters of that line. He was picked by Okakura Tenshin to be the first teacher at the School of Fine Arts (predecessor to the Tokyo University of Arts). Sadly Hogai died before he could take up his position.
