Walking – Kitain-temple at the end of September


We walked around Kitain on 25 September. It was not too hot but still getting a bit sweaty after walking around.


“Tahou-tou” in Kita-in. You can see beautiful cherry blossoms in the Spring.

sign board for foreigners

Next to “Tahou-tou” there is a sign board for foreigners. This is not an information on Tahou-tou but for the tourists of Kawagoe in general. It’s just set up recently as the last time we visited there wasn’t any signage.


Stone steps to “Jigen-dou” in Kita-in.


“Jigen-dou” is a memorial tower to comemorate Tenkai Soujyou and this is appointed as a national important cultural property.
It was built by an order of Tokugawa Iemitsu after 3 years from the death of Tenkai Soujyou in the era of Tempo 2 (1645).

This is “Senba Tousyuo-gu Aoi Tei-en(garden)” in Kita-in. You can see fireflies from the end of May to the early July.

Stone steps to Senba Tousyou-gu

Stone steps to “Senba Tousyou-gu”. It seemed that the place was closed so we didn’t go up. Look at the “Aoi” Crest on the gate!

Toki-no Kane?

There is “Chya-soba Jyu-an Kitain” a Japanese Soba Noodle restaurant in the shape of Toki-no Kane on the way to the entrance where Tahou-tou is located.
This is an imitation of Tokino Kane in Kurazukurino Machinami.
