東京都足立区皿沼1丁目4-2
1 Chome-4-2 Saranuma, Adachi, Tokyo 123-0862

- Chant of the temple
武蔵野の無情の流れ荒川の
心の宿の皿沼不動


Saranuma (swamp like a plate) is located in the North-East of Arakawa and has been under the control of the Edo Bakufu Government.
The temple 東叡山寛永寺 was erected in 1625
as The Hieizan of the East
and the whole swamp was under its protection. Around it many other temples were soon built too.
The center of the cult was 阿弥陀仏 Amida Buddha and the 念仏講 Nenbutsu chanting.
With the greater popularity of Narita Fudo they got a statue of Fudo standing in front 御前立不動明王 for prayers.

. 東叡山寛永寺 Ueno Tōeizan Kanei-Ji .
A legend

gama 蝦蟇 toad,hebi 蛇 serpent
In November 1820 a couple went to 東叡山根岸の弁才天の祠 the Benten shrine in the compound of the Kanei-Ji (Negishi).
That night one of their man-servants had a dream of a toad. The toad said it lived under the kitchen sink and was 癩蝦蟇 Kattai-gama, leprosy toad.
It said the mistress had violated the rules of the shrine visit and next night a serpent would come for revenge. But the Toad would protect them.
Next morning when they looked they found a large dead toad under the sink.
The next night the toad appeared in the dream of the master. It said: "I have died but I left enough children to keep protecting you!"
Then following night the serpent appeared in his dream and said: "From now on, I will also protect your home and family!"
