History of Princess Adachi

About Adachi Hime

Adachi Hime is a central figure in a legend told in Musashi Province’s Adachi District about 1,220 years ago. She met an unfortunate death due to a political marriage, and before mourning her, six temples were built in the area, each enshrining an image of Amitabha Buddha. Her tragic fate and its impact on the region are deeply ingrained in the history and culture of Adachi Ward.
    

About the Six Amitabha Pilgrimage

The “Six Amitabha Pilgrimage” originates from the act of mourning Adachi Hime, where Kobo Daishi (Kukai) carved six Amitabha Buddha statues from a single tree in one night, placing each in six temples built for this purpose. This pilgrimage became extremely popular during the mid-Edo period. Although it’s called the Six Amitabha, the pilgrimage typically includes visiting eight Amitabha statues, adding two more called “leftover” and “remaining.”
     

About the Five-Colored Sakura

The pilgrimage coincided with the cherry blossom season. The Five-Colored Sakura was cherished as “Arakawa Embankment’s Five-Colored Sakura” during the Meiji period and is beloved by many. However, due to increased traffic and visitors, the vitality of the cherry trees declined, and after World War II, they were cut down for firewood, temporarily disappearing. Later, to revive “Arakawa Embankment’s Five-Colored Sakura,” a 4.4km stretch of cherry trees was planted along the left bank of the Arakawa River, featuring Satosakura (village cherry trees).
