In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
Follow families to Zoshigaya Kishimojindo Temple to worship the goddess of safe birth and child rearing, Kishimojin. People also visit this illuminated cultural property to wish for household safety, removal of bad luck, and academic success.
The temple celebrates events with large and small festivals throughout the year. The biggest one is the Grand festival in October. It has been passed down since the Edo period (1603 - 1867) and lasts for three days every year. Watch taiko drums and food stalls fill the usually quiet streets of the neighborhood with lively energy, and rejoice in the vibrant colors of illuminated sakura trees.
Note: Photography is forbidden inside the temple.
For updated information on opening hours, closings, prices, and more, please check the official website or ask the facility directly.
