I’m Masayo, Tokyo Guided Tour planner.

I introduce where to explore with family members in Tokyo.

Today’s target is…

Monzen nakacho!

Where’s Monzen nakacho?

Monzen nakacho has prospered as a town developed near the gate of a temple since the end of the 17th century.
This area remains the atmosphere of Edo era.

I introduce historical spots and events in this area.

The best three spots in Monzen nakacho

1. Fukagawafudo-do


Fukagawafudo-do is a branch temple of Naritasan Shinsyo-ji temple.
Naritasan Shinsyo-ji temple was so popular that people in Edo town withed to worship the principal image of the Buddha.
In the 18th century, it was brought to Eidai temple which was located in this area, and opened to the public for two month.
That is the beginning of Fukagawafudodo.

Now you can see a lot of Buddhist statues in the temple.
At 9:00am 11:00am, 1:00pm, 3:00pm and 500pm, you can see Homa ritual.
