New Year's Shrine Visit at Yutenji

Yutenji (祐天寺 yūtenji?) is a temple of the Pure Land Sect of Buddhism in Nakameguro, Meguro, Tokyo, Japan.

In 1718, the 3rd year of the Kyōhō era, the 36th Buddhist monk of Zōjōji called Yūten (祐天 yūten?) died. One of his disciples, Yumi (祐海 yumi?), built Yutenji as his shrine and made him the founder.


5 minutes walk from Yutenji railway station on the Tokyu Toyoko Line.
