Tsukuda Tendai Jizō-son

Tsukishima area guide_ Tsukuda Tendai Jizō-son 佃天台地蔵尊

 Tsukuda Tendai Jizō-son is a unique shrine in Tsukishima. As soon as you set foot in this narrow alley, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time. Tsukuda Tendai Jizō-son is in the middle of the alley. The highlight of the place is a large ginkgo tree that grows through the roof of the building. This tree is said to be around 300 years old, and many people come here to feel its energy.

Tsukuda Tendai Jizoson is a small shrine to Jizo, the Buddhist guardian deity of small children. 

The Buddhist chief priest, Suu-toku-in, resided at Ueno Kan-ei-ji Temple between 1715 and 1738. The priest is conveyed here with wishing stones in his left hand and a cane in his right. It is believed that the jizo depicted here on the stone is one of 84,000 Jizos that were being built at the time. This jizo provided a critical icon to members of the Buddhist faith throughout the nation. 

The Jizo is believed to possess the power to guard children against danger, promote longevity, and deliver prosperity and health. The Jizo has long been worshipped by the local people of Tsukuda as well as many other Buddhist followers from other regions.
