One of the most frequently and fervently patronised temples in Ueno-koen park is the Kiyomizu Kannon-do Temple. Women wishing to conceive leave a doll here for the 1000-armed goddess senju Kannon.

Kiyomizu Kannon-do

It enshrines Kosodate Kannon, protectress of childbearing and child-raising; women hoping to become pregnant come here to ask for the goddess's mercy, and those whose wishes have been fulfilled return to pray for their child's good health and protection. Many leave behind dolls as symbols of their children, then the women wait to see if Kannon has granted them the gift of fertility. Once a year, on September 25, a requiem service is held for all the dolls at the temple, after which they are burnt in an annual bonfire on 25 September.

Established in 1631 and moved to its present site overlooking Shinobazu Pond in 1698, this small but important structure is a copy of the famous Kiyomizu Temple in Kyoto, albeit smaller. It was once part of the Kan'eiji Temple precincts that covered Ueno Hill during the Edo Period. Remarkably, the temple survived both the 1868 battle between Imperial and Shogunate forces and bombings during World War II. Today, it's one of Tokyo's oldest temples.
