In 1947, Magomemachi: Kamata and Omori became one ward and Magome became part of Ota ward.

Magome was part of the land belonging to the temple Zoojooji, Zōjō-ji 増上寺 Zojo-Ji.
This temple has a strong relation to the Tokugawa Shogunate.

Manpukuji 萬福禅寺 - 萬福寺 - 万福寺 Manpuku-Ji Zen Temple
1 Chome-49-1 Minamimagome, Ōta



The temple is famous for the Haiku memorial stone of Muro Saisei, see below.


The temple is already mentioned in the 江戸時代名所図絵 Edo Meisho Zue.
The three main statues are Amida Nyorai, Kannon Bosatsu, Seishi Bosatsu.
The temple was built by 梶原景時 Kajiwara Kagetoki (?1140 - 1200).
Kagetoki was a spy for Minamoto no Yoritomo in the Genpei War, and a warrior against the Taira clan. He came to be known for his greed and treachery.
- - - More about Kagetoki in the WIKIPEDIA !
The temple burned down in 1320 and fell in despair. In 1575, it ws re-built as a Zen temple by 明堂文龍大和尚 high priest Meido Bunryu.
In 1606, after the death of members of the Kajiwara clan it fell in despair again.

Magome no sanbon matsu 馬込の三本松 three pine trees at Magome
at 北馬込二丁目 Kita-Magome second sub-district

They date back to the Muromachi period and lived more than 600 years. Pilgrims to the Ise Shrine passed here on their way back, planted the trees and used it as a prayer place to express their gratitude for a safe trip.
The three trees were lost in the early Showa period, but names of shops and a bus station in the area still remind of them.


photo from 1940.

In this area there used to be many pine trees, called the Pine Field of Magome village 馬込村松原 Magome mura Matsubara.

There used to be a mound, Sanbonmatsu-zuka 三本松塚, thought to be a Kofun mound, in the compound of the
Shrine 天祖神社 Tenso Jinja. a shrine also refered to as 伊勢宮 Ise Shrine.
2 Chome-28-14 Kitamagome, Ōta.
It was the protector shrine of the valleys of Kita-Magome, 北久保 Kitakubo, 松原 Matsubara and 堂寺 Dotera.



Further research in 1992 found that the moat was not a Kofun after all.

Magome Writers' Village (馬込文士村 Magome Bunshimura)



- quote -
In the early 1900s, the area of Magome in Ota Ward attracted a number of Japan's top writers and artists. Novelists, sculptors and calligraphers all moved to the quiet countryside outside the capital to practice their crafts in a supportive community. Today, their cultural contributions are remembered in a comprehensive walking trail around the area known as the Magome Writers' Village.
A mural just outside Omori Station
depicting the faces of the Magome writers marks the eastern end of the walking trail. Much of the route is highlighted simply by plaques detailing individual writers or artists and their connection to a particular spot in the ward. However, several extant structures allow a more intimate glimpse into the lives of these cultural giants of the Taisho and Showa Periods. Visit the peaceful grounds of the home of Ozaki Shiro, a driving force in the local writer's community. Nearby, a detailed exhibit showcases the life and works of newspaper founder Tokutomi Soho. Along the southern end of the route, samples of the art of calligrapher Kumagai Tsuneko fill the rooms of her tiny home.
The Ota Folk Museum
sits at the midpoint of the route and offers a detailed look at not only the resident writers and their works but also the geography, culture and prehistory of the surrounding area. While exhibits are signed in Japanese only, an English pamphlet provides a thorough introduction to the museum's main themes.
