Travel Guide - Kabuki-cho Benzaiten

InformationInformation

In Kabuki-cho 1 chome, stands a stature of Benzaiten (Saraswati, the Hindu goddess of art, knowledge, beauty, and science). It is said that praying to this statue will bless you with knowledge, skill in the arts, and wealth.
During the Edo period (1603 - 1868), Kabuki-cho was one vast swamp, in which this statue of Benzaiten is said to have been enshrined. During the Meiji period (1868 - 1912), the swamp was filled in and Benzaiten was enshrined in her current location. She has stood watch over the land or Kabuki-cho through the centuries, and through its many changes.
