Kisshō-ji, also Kichijō-ji (吉祥寺, not to be confused with Kichijōji, the Tokyo neighbourhood) is a Buddhist Temple located in Bunkyo, Tokyo, Japan. It was founded in 1458, during the Muromachi period.
In 1592, the "Sendan-Rin" School for Buddhist monks was founded in the precincts of the temple. In 1905, the Sendan-Rin School was renamed Soto-shu University; in 1925 Soto-shu University became Komazawa University.
The temple is where Enomoto Takeaki was buried in 1908 at the age of 72.
