This temple was built in 1393 to thwart attacks from the South. It is known as the mortuary temple of the Tokugawa family. The temple is now an important cultural property and the massive Sammon gate, erected in 1605, is very impressive. Included in the complex is the oldest gingko tree in Tokyo, which is now considered as a natural monument. There is also a fine assembly of Buddhist Jizo statues standing sentinel.
