Daienji Temple

A beautiful little temple with tiny stone statues

If you happen to visit the Meguro area, don’t forget to also visit Daienji Temple. It is located in a narrow street and it only takes five minutes of walking from the Meguro Station. As you enter the temple, you will immediately see a tall Buddha sculpture and 500 small stone statues depicting the Gohyaku Rakan or followers of Buddha on the background. Right in the middle of the statues is a small pond, adding to the serenity of the place. Standing in between the gate and the statues are small Jizo figures, who act as a guardian of children. Truly a breathtaking view overall.
