Temple with Koto City oldest five-storied pagoda
Fukurokuju, believed to have the divine grace for long life, is one of the Fukagawa Seven Deities of Good Luck and is enshrined in Rokkakudou on the precincts. Shingyoji Temple was built in 1616 in Hatschobori and transferred to this place in 1633. It was founded by Yogen-in, wife of Hiroyoshi Kikkawa, the feudal lord of Iwakuni-han (Yamaguchi), who made the famous Kintaikyo Bridge. On the precincts is the oldest five-story pagoda in Koto-ku. Also in its graveyard are the graves of 5th Nanboku Tsuruya and Heisuke Kudo, the author of Akaezofusetsukou.
