Kishimojin-do

The God for Safe Childbirth and Child Rearing

3.58

Buddhist temple

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.”
The “Zoshigaya Information Center” is located on the path leading to the temple, and the horned owl dolls made of zebra grass that are sold here are a popular souvenir.

    座落在小城的住宅區內,從參道沿途都是茂密的大樹,神社裡也有高聳茂密的六百年大神木。據說是祈求胎兒、母親平安的神社,氣氛非常寧靜和諧,傳統的小雜貨舖也很有味道。
