Hidden in a residential area is the beautiful Araiyakushi Baishouin, it is the largest temple in Nakano and is known as the ‘God of Eyes.’ This has its roots in the Edo period when a Shogun named Hidetada went to the temple to pray for a cure for her daughter’s eye disease. The temple is also known for bringing good luck for child-raising.

Araiyakushi Baishouin is also a popular place for locals to view the cherry blossoms in spring.
