Hello!

I’m Masayo, family entertainment planner.

I introduce where to explore  in Tokyo.

Today’s target is….

 

Shibamata

If you plan to visit Asakusa with your family, please consider to visit Shibamata.

Asakusa is really popular spot, and of course I like it.

There is the oldest amusement park in Japan, so children can enjoy it.

But you might worry about your children get lost in the crowd.

 

If you would like to enjoy Japan’s old atmosphere such as Asakusa, I recommend you Shibamata.

It is a historical temple that was founded at the beginning of 17th century.

However, it was faced with a crisis.

 

“We lost the statue of Buddha——————-!”

 

“Wow! The Buddha is missing!!!!”

 

“…Kidnapped??”

 

“No way. It’s our fault!!”

Some of the Buddhist monks thought they must have found it out no matter what it takes.

And finally they found it, but………

 

“Very dirty!!!”

It had been left for long time, thus it was so grubby as they couldn’t recognize what it was.

They purified it with water and a holy Buddhist statue appeared.

This is the Buddhist statue worshipped Shibamata Daikyoji temple now.

 

Even Buddha, the life has been filled with hardship and many vicissitudes.

From now on, I give you today’s mission.

What is the secret treasure of arts in Shibamata Daikyoji temple?

 

What else to see?

Actually, it is not just a temple.

Many artistic sculptures are made on the building.
