It is said that the venerable Shuei built it in 1190, and it was described in Edo Meisho Zue (a guide book described some spots in Edo in Edo period) so Myouonji Temple is one of the oldest temples in Edogawaku. Later, the venerable Shuyo (? - 1575) and Daiku Hoin (? - 1780) rebuilt the temple in each. The principle image of Myouonji Temple is the wooden statue of Juichimen Kannon Ryuzou (a standing Kannon having eleven faces) carved in Momoyama period. And the statue of Yakushi Nyorai carved by Kashuga Busshi is also dedicated in it. Moreover, several stone tablets inscribed in Nanbokucho period has been discovered in the site.

And Kannon and Seishi Bosatsus standing the both sides are created it to add in Nanbokucho period.

Katame no Funa (the Legend of the One-eyed Crucian Carps)

Once upon a time, a blind girl lived in Ichinoe village. The girl wanted to see the world, so she offered prayers at the statue of Yakushi Nyorai to cure so she went on fast and prayed for it for 21 days. At the last day of the fast, her prayer was answered. She found that she could see. She released many crucian carps into the pond in front of the Yakushi Nyorai as her rewards. However, the carps became one-eyed.
