Fuyuki Bentendo Temple

Temple associated with the Fukuki family of wealthy lumber merchants

Benzaiten, believed to have the divine grace for arts, is one of the Fukagawa Seven Deities of Good Luck and is enshrined here. It is said that a wealthy lumber merchant, Naotsugu Fuyuki, respectfully placed the partial spirit of Konoe Chikubushima Benzaiten in his residence and later his grandson Yaheiji moved it to this location. Fuyuki Kosode, a work of art drawn for the wife of Yaheiji by Korin Ogata, who received the care at this large Fuyuki residence, has been preserved at the Tokyo National Museum.
