73rd Fudasho (pilgrimage site) in the Gofunai 88 Sacred Places
Benzaiten, believed to have divine grace for arts, is one of the Kameido Seven Deities of Good Luck and is enshrined in a temple within the property. This Shingon sect temple is said to have been founded in 1531 by Genkaku-hoin. At that time, Fudomyohoh was enshrined here as the principal image. It was known as "Kameido Fudo" in the Edo period. In 1901, it was united with Kakuoji Temple in Fukagawa Honmura-cho (present-day Sarue 2) and has remained to the present with Dainichi-nyorai as its principal image. It is the 73rd Fudasho (pilgrimage site) in the Gofunai 88 Sacred Places, a pilgrimage that visits 88 temples in Tokyo associated with Kobodaishi.
