This temple was founded in 1394 by 幸尊法印 priest Yukitaka. He was on a tour to promote Buddhism, when he passed near the pond 三寶池 Sanpoike, where he settled down and build his humble hut. That is the beginning of an important temple.
The main statue is 不動明王 Fudo Myo-O.
Another statue is of 紅頗梨色阿弥陀仏 Gubarijiki Amidabutsu.
Related to the shrine 愛宕社 Atago Shrine and 石神井社 Shakujii Shrine.

In 1477 the temple was relocated to ist present place by 太田道灌 Ota Dokan.
In 1591 it became a stipend of 10 石 koku and was declared a 御朱印寺 temple to distribute stamps.
(A koku of rice weighs about 150 kilograms.)
It is close to 池淵史跡公園 Ikefuchi Historical Park.



The third Shogun, 将軍家光 Tokugawa Iemitsu, often passed here during his falcon hunting and a special gate was constructed later for him to go through, 御成門 Onari-Mon , now the oldest existing building in the temple complex.

Shakujii Park (石神井公園, Shakujii Kōen) is a public park in the Japanese town of Shakujii, in Tokyo's Nerima ward. Established in 1959, it is one of the larger parks in the metropolis, after Ueno Park.
ishigami 石神 / しゃくじ (also red shakujin or shakuji) are specially formed stones, where people felt the power of the Deity. When villagers were digging for a i 井 well long long long ago, they excarvated a sekken 石剣 stone looking like a ritual sword. They revered it as a special stone. The well they dug became a lake in due time.
The park contains within it two ponds, 石神井池 Shakujii Pond and 三宝寺池 Sanpō-Ji Pond,, several small Shintō shrines, and the remains of Shakujii castle.
The Shakujii River runs east-west a short ways south of the park. The ponds are said to have formed naturally from the gushing up of underground water from the Musashino-dai Pond a short distance away. Over the years, however, the ponds have slowly shrunk, and so, in order to preserve the park's scenery and its recreational use, manmade systems have been installed to pump water into the ponds.
The castle ruins
date from the Kamakura period (1185-1333), or earlier, and thus it is known that the site was in use, and regarded as strategically important, for many centuries. The castle was the residence of the 豊島氏 Toshima clan of samurai, who ruled over the surrounding area in the 14th-15th centuries. The clan's destruction came largely at the hands of Ōta Dōkan, who was responsible for the construction of Edo castle; many of the ruins and shrines in the area are associated with him.

During the Edo period, farmers living nearby used the water to grow rice, barley, big radishes and other vegetables.




Nearby is also the shrine 石神井神社 Shakujii Jinja.
