- 萬昌山 Banshozan 金剛幢院 Kongodo-In  圓満寺 Enman-Ji
文京区湯島1-6-2 / 1 Chome-6-2 Yushima, Bunkyō ward
Shingon Sect : 御室派 Omuro branch



This temple was founded in 1710 by 木食義高僧正 Mokujiki Giko Sojo (grandchild of 足利義輝 Ashikaga Yoshiteru (1536 - 1565).
His name was also 覚海 Kakukai and 義高法印 Giko Hoin.
The main statues are 十一面観世音 Kannon with 11 Heads and 不動明王 Fudo Myo-O.
The Kannon statue was made by the nun 如意法尼 Nyoi Ho-Ni. She was the wife of Emperor 淳和天皇 Junna Tenno (785 - 840) and related to Kobo Daishi Kukai. She later became a nun and lived in the temple 神呪寺 Kanno-Ji in Hyogo, where she kept the statue as her special treasure.

The 6th Shogun, 徳川家宣 Tokugawa Ienobu (1662 - 1712) promoted the building of this temple in Yushima and contributed 1000 Tsubo of land to it. It thus became a place to pray for the safety of the state.
The buildings burned down many times and were rebuilt. In 1887 high priest 十摩宥長大僧正 Yucho from 雨降山大山寺 Mount Afuri Oyamadera in Kanagawa took over as head priest and brought a statue of Fudo Myo-O to be venerated.
The temple burned down again in 1963 and was finally installed in the Omuro Bulding in 1978.

Related to the temple 仁和寺 Ninna-Ji in Kyoto located in : 京都市右京区御室(おむろ)in Omuro.
Enman-Ji is now situated in the 9th floor of a modern building called Omuro Biru おむろビル.

The temple is also called 湯島木食寺 Yushima no Mokujiki Temple.
This name is related to another Mokujiki Saint 木食観正上人 Mokujiki Kansho in 1819.

Related to the temple 長谷寺 Hasedera in Nara.
In the Edo period revived in 1615 by priest 祐遍法印 Yuhen Hoin (赤面法印 Akazura Hoin "with a red face").

Since it is located at the entrance to the Nakasendo Road in Sugamo, the 8th Shogun, 八代将軍吉宗 Yoshimune, often came here on his hawking trips. The temple therefore became a stopover 御膳所 for the Shogun to take a rest.

- - - - - 江戸六地蔵 The Six Jizo Statues of the Edo Pilgrimage



The statue had been built in 1705 with the vow of priest 地蔵坊正元 Jizobo Shogen and was finished in 1720 with the help of many pilgrims.
Shogen had been ill as a child and always observed his parents pray to Jizo for his recovery. So he vowed to promote the belief in Jizo when he was healed. He placed six statues of a seated Jizo in six temples in Edo at the main exit roads of town.
