“the site of the grave of Katsushika Hokusai”
Review of Seikyoji Temple

Seikyoji Temple
Ranked #154 of 486 things to do in Taito
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

It is in the small local temple that the remains of Katsushika Hokusai of 'Wave off Kanagawa' picture fame were laid to rest alongside his wife and daughter (not the daughter who was an artist in her won right). Its not too difficult to find -nearest stations are Inarichō on the Ginza Line and Shin-Okachimachi on the Oedo Line. Though it might feel that your are intruding the family who live here made us feel very welcome and took us to his grave. There is also a bust of Hokusai at an unusual angle which, as the family pointed out, is turned so it faces Fujisan
