Ryukoin Temple

Ryukoin Temple

Temple full of people of much prayer over Fukagawa Shichifukujin(Seven Gods of Good Fortune) for New Year holidays

Bishamonten, believed to have divine grace for courage, is one of the Fukagawa Seven Deities of Good Luck and is enshrined here. We were founded at first in Bakurocho (Chuo-ku), but we encountered several times of fires and moved to the (1682) present location in 1682. It is said that later Bishamonten was safely placed at the north-east corner within the precincts to avoid the influence of demons. At New Year's, it bustles with many people visiting the Fukagawa Seven Deities of Good Luck.
