Kiyomizudo Temple


"The Thousand Arms Temple"

Known more because it was not destroyed in the conflagration of the civil war of 1868 rather than for its supposed resemblance to Kyoto's Kiyomizudera, this Tokyo version was built by Tenkai, Kaneiji's first abbot. He had it constructed in 1631 to pay homage to Kannon (a bodhisattva) of the 1000 arms. Known for her compassion, the dolls on view here express the gratitude of couples who became fertile after praying to Kannon's image.
