The Kume no Heinai-do hall in Asakusa houses a stone statue of Kume Heiuchi, a warrior from the early Edo period.

Heiuchi Kume, who excelled at swordsmanship, devoted himself to Zen at Kongoin Temple in Sensoji in order to make offerings to the many people who came to visit him.

After that, the stone statue was placed in this hall.
