InformationInformation

Zensho-an Temple was constructed by the sword and Zen master Yamaoka Tesshu in 1883 to mourn for the dead during the Meiji Restoration. The temple is also the resting place of the Rakugo performer Sanyutei Encho. The Encho Matsuri Festival is held in his honor every August. Along with vaudeville performances, the Yurei-ga gallery (Encho's collection of ghost scrolls) by artists such as Maruyama Okyo is open to the public in the festival.
