    Chomei-ji Temple

    5-4-4 Mukojima
    Tokyo, 131-0033

    A grateful shogun, Iemitsu Tokugawa, renamed this temple—previously called Josen-ji—to mean "Long Life Temple." The story is that one day he fell ill during a falcon hunt (a favorite pass time of shoguns.) He was brought to the temple and was offered spring water by the abbot. After the shogun drank, he soon revived. The temple then became widely known, and was a favorite venue for poets who composed the Japanese verse "haiku". It has even been referred to as Haikudera.
