Travel Guide - Choan-ji Temple (Jurojin)


Choan-ji Temple enshrines Jurojin, the god of longevity belongs to Yanaka Shichifukujin (Seven Gods of Good Fortune). The temple is said to have been founded in 1669, but there is "Itabi (stone memorial tablets dedicated to the dead)" from the Kamakura Period (1185 - 1333) stands in the temple grounds, which even dates back 400 years before the establishment of the temple.
The temple is also known as the resting place of Kano Hogai (1828 - 1888), a Japanese painter from the late-Edo Period (1603 - 1868) to the early-Meiji Period (1868 - 1912). He was one of the last of the Kano painters, and also called "the father of Japanese modern painting".
