About this sight
About a five-minute walk from Meguro station and en route to Meguro Gajoen, this Buddhist temple, built in 1662, is infamous as the starting point of a deliberately lit fire that destroyed most of Tokyo, then known as Edo, in 1772. The alleged arsonist, from a vegetable store family, has her tomb located inside the temple. The fire's victims are represented by 500 small Buddha statues, depicted arhats, on the temple grounds.
