    On Rysenji’s grounds, the famous Meguro Fudo-myo-o (Black Eyed Fudo-Myo-o) statue stands guard, and it’s from this sentinel that the ward takes its name. This was one of five such statues placed protectively around Edo’s borders nearly 400 years ago, each with eyes of a different color. Fudo Myo-o is a revered guardian deity of the Buddhist faith.

  • Maeda House
