Atagosan Jizoin Horinji and Jo Tomyo Night-light

愛宕山地蔵院寶林寺小岩市川の渡し場の常燈明
Atagosan Jizoin Horinji Temple stands on the west side of Edogawa River and a stone night-light called Jo Tomyo built in 1670 stands in it and the night-light shows there had been the barrier and the ferry at Koiwa and Ichikawa near the temple. And there is the signboard telling the remains of the barrier at Ichikawa on the east bank of the river, and Honzoji Temple next to Horinji is said to be the house of the officers working at the barrier.
A walk around the barriers and the ferries at Koiwa and Ichikawa on the both sides of Edogawa River is a very enjoyable course. Why don't you visit Atagosan Jizoin Horinji Temple?
