The God for Safe Childbirth and Child Rearing.
Kishimojin-do is a temple that worships “Shiboshin,” a god for safe childbirth and also child rearing. The line of zelkova trees along the path that leads to the temple from the Kishibojinmae stop is designated as one of Tokyo’s natural monuments. A must-see within the temple’s grounds is a huge gingko tree approximately 700 years old.
The temple grounds also house a historic candy shop called “Kamikawaguchiya.”
