Zempukuji Temple


by Daderot

"Site of first American Legation"

In 832 this temple was established by the Buddhist priest, Kobo Daishi. It is well known as the location for the first US legation in 1859. Do not miss the stone tribute in honor of Townsend Harris, the first American minister to Japan. Also, Yukichi Fukuzawa, the father of Keio University is buried here. Although the air raids of the Second World War resulted in the destruction of all the buildings, most historical documents have been preserved.
