Joshinji is also known as Kuhonbutsu is a large Jodo sect Buddhist temple in Jiyugaoka Tokyo. The temple was established in 1678 and still maintains its original buildings . The grounds contain some of Tokyo’s oldest trees a few more than 700 years old. The Hondo main hall, was built in 1759 and has a striking zen garden next to the hall, one of the very few dry karesansui gardens in Tokyo. Even so, Joshinji Kuhon Butsu is not listed as a tourist attraction and maintains its serenity as a working Jodo Buddhist temple without charing admissions, fees nor restrictions on entering.
