Zenkokuji Temple has a bright red gate and is located in the middle of Kagurazaka in Tokyo.
This temple has been busy since the Edo period (1600-1867). A symbol of Kagurazaka, it is still a very popular spot today, known for the two tiger statues sitting in front of the main hall.
Located in the middle of Kagurazaka Street, the famous Zenkokuji Temple is dedicated to Bishamonten, one of the Seven Gods of Good Fortune and the god of wealth. Zenkokuji Temple was built in 1595 during the Azuchi-Momoyama period. The precincts of the temple are purified, and the dignified statue of Bishamontengives you a sense of the historical atmosphere.
