The area around Tokyo's Meguro Fudoson Temple has traditionally been a site for the city's faithful.

Among the area's cluster of temples and shrines is the prominent Anyoin Temple in Shinagawa Ward, one of the oldest in the area, dating back to the ninth century.

Over the past decade, the temple, which belongs to the Tendai sect, one of Japan's mainstream Buddhist groups, has become known for its museum devoted to Tibetan Buddhism, a distinctive form that evolved in Tibet in the seventh century.
