Built in 1659, during the Edo period by Buddhist monk, Nichiyu, the Shingen-ji Temple is located in Tokyo's Taito district. During the Meiji period, the temple became famous for its Iriya Asagao (Morning Glory) Festival, held every July. Dedicated to Kishibojin, the Buddhist goddess of children and mothers, the temple is accessible by the Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line and is only a short walk from the Iriya station. Admission is free.
