Sekiden-ji Temple

This temple of Shingon Sect is located where Tamagawa River and Asakawa River join together. According to the history of temple, this temple was founded in 1361, but it was dilapidated momentarily. Afterward this temple became to be called Sekiden-ji with a Kannon statue which came floating down Tamagawa River in flood in 1544. This episode shows the characteristic of this area which was rice-producing district but was menaced by flood.

Although HIJIKATA Toshizo's family temple is Takahatasan Kongo-ji Temple (Takahata Fudo-son), he was buried in this Sekiden-ji Temple. So not only on May 11, anniversary of his death, many his fans visit his grave.
