Ekōin Temple is a temple of the Jodo sect built in 1657 to mourn the victims of the Great Meireki Fire. Until the construction of the old Kokugikan, donation sumo matches were held here to raise funds for public social projects.
In the precincts of the temple, there is a monument inscribed with “Chikara-zuka” and a stone monument of sumo.
