Away with Epidemics!
The Ancient Jindaiji Temple and Jindaiji Soba
Approach to temple
Long, long ago, way before the time of Tokyo, Edo, and even Musashino Province, the ancient temple of Jindaiji was founded at an important place of worship by people who loved the abundant spring water there. Have you heard about the lush green Jindaiji temple in Chofu with its diverse attractions and the soba culture lining its approach? Jindaiji is the only temple in Tokyo enshrining a statue of Buddha designated as a national treasure. The temple’s deity, Ganzan Daishi, drives away epidemics, and soba noodles are a nutritional food that boosts the immune system. Let me introduce Jindaiji, which continues to play an important role in comforting people in these uncertain times, and its tasty soba.
