“Dragon” in Ikegami Honmon-ji, Ota, Tokyo 11km

池上本門寺の龍(東京都大田区)のGPSアート

GPS art of a dragon drawn at one of Tokyo’s most popular Hatsumode spot🐉✨

This GPS art course allows visitors to draw the Chinese character for the Chinese zodiac animal “dragon (龍)” in the area around Ikegamihonmonji Temple, a Hatsumode spot in Tokyo with a connection to dragons.
The dragon is painted on the ceiling of the Soshidō Hall in Ikegamihonmonji Temple. The dragon was not completed because Tatsuko Kawabata died while working on it. Under the guidance of the painter Okumura Togyu, the saint Kaneko Nichiwei performed the opening ceremony.
Ikegami Honmonji Temple is the head temple of Nichiren Shoshu, and the site of Nichiren Shonin’s death in 1282. Nichiren Shonin was a monk active in the Kamakura period (1185-1333) and the founder of Nichiren Shoshu.
Although this is a popular spot for worshippers, large crowds are expected in 2024, the year of the dragon. Please try to visit as a Hatsumode (first visit to the shrine) avoiding the density 🐉✨
