It was built by the venerable Nichibu.
There is a stone bridge in front of the gate, beautifully trimmed pine trees standing on the right and a stone garden opened on the left, so they give some images of the views in Kasai in Edo period, so there were long shores of Edo Bay (Tokyo Bay) opened in this area. In summer, white crape myrtle blossoms paint the site. Visitors enjoy seeing stylish gardens and Japanese Buddhist architectures in Jokosan Myorenji Temple. Why don't you visit it?
