This temple is widely known as Kuhon-butsu but is formally called Kuhonzan Yuizainembutsu-in Joshin-ji.
It was built in the early part of the Edo Era in 1678 during the reign of the 4th Tokugawa Shogun Ietsuna by the great monk Kaseki Shonin on the donated land of the old Okusawa Castle ruin.
It belongs to the Jodo Shu Pure Land Buddhist denomination and covers an area of 120,000㎡.
Various spots within the temple grounds are prominent preserved areas in Tokyo city.
These spots still maintain the ambiance of previous days.
The main tower was designed according to descriptions in the Meditation Sutra (Kammuryoju-kyo), a principal text of Jodo Shu.
A picture of this tower drawn in The Famous Views of Edo (Edo meisho zu-e) compared with today shows little change.
In 1965, the roofs of the Main Hall and the Gate of the Two Deva Kings were repaired, and the original ones made of reed were replaced by copper ones.(quotations from the "Kuhon-butsu Enghi")
