One of the friendliest temples

Togenukijizo is obviously a local temple as the friendliness of the locals show. Rub that part of the statue that corresponds to your troublesome body part for sone help.

Togenuki means to get thorns out of your body. Smoke from the big burner in front of the building is supposed cure any ailment. It may even make you smarter.

Ikebukuro is an area of massive development. Several thousand tenants occupy two giant department stores and shopping malls, where all sorts of shopping and gourmet foods can be enjoyed. The 60-story building at the east entrance of the station, Sunshine City, is a landmark within Ikebukuro and features an aquarium, planetarium, theme park as well as an observation platform. The popular name for the western side of this area is "Otome Road" (Maiden Road) and there are many shops selling products related to anime with a female theme.
