There are a number of small halls in the precincts of Meguro Fudoson. The wooden door in this photo is one such hall. The door was closed tightly and a large incense burner was placed in front of it. In spite of the sign that says "No bills", there are a lot of bills posted on the wall. Even if you tell someone who wants to put them up that they can't, they won't listen to you.
By the way, the name "Meguro Fudoson" is a common name for this temple, and its official name is Ryusen-Ji Temple. It is one of the five colored Fudo temples in Edo, and according to legend, it was built in 808. Although it is now completely surrounded by residential areas and looks as if it is located near the heart of Tokyo, it was once a tourist attraction located in the countryside, far from Edo, where you could take a short trip to visit.
