Why Denzuin Temple is special ?
Very few travelers would claim to have visited or even heard of this shrine. Located a fair distance from the nearest train stations, it is not easy to chance upon it either. Historically, this temple was commissioned by Ieyasu Tokugawa for his mother. As with most temples in Japan, a beautiful interior and serene atmosphere can be enjoyed

What to explore at Denzuin Temple?
Denzuin Temple does not take a very prominent place among the temples of Tokyo visited by tourists, but it must have been quite special to its founder, Tokugawa Ieyasu, who dedicated this temple to his mother, Odaino-kata. The temple was supported by the Tokugawa shoguns and their family and it is one of the leading 18 monasteries in the Kanto area. The cemetery to the left and behind the temple has great history significance since the graves of many prominent women connected to the Tokugawa family can be found there, among them those of Odaino-kata and Senhime.
