Ryūsen-ji Temple (Meguro Fudōson)
Ryūsenji, also known as the Meguro Fudō, is a Buddhist temple located in Meguro. The temple currently belongs to the Tendai school of Japanese Buddhism, and its main image is a hibutsu statue of Fudō-myōō.
The old city of Edo had long been protected by five guardian deities, each with eyes of a different colour.
The black-eyed one, or Meguro Fudō, was placed at this temple, giving the neighbourhood its name. The area of this temple is quite huge. If you visit during the spring there are many cherry blossoms in full bloom.
