If you visit Fukagawa Edo Museum, you can also visit this place as it is the next-door.
There is a graveyard for Sadanobu Matsudaira from Mutsu Shirakawa clan and the name of this area were named after the clan name.

Founded in 1624, this temple was relocated to the current site a year after the Great Fire of Meireki in 1657.

Reiganji Buddhist Temple of the Joudo sect is located close to Fukagawa Edo Museum. Founded in 1624, it was originally located more west in Reiganjima which is now part of Chuuou Ward, but relocated to the current site a year after the Great Fire of Meireki. The temple held a close relationship with the Tokugawa shogunate. The grave of the feudal lord of Shirakawa (Fukushima Prefecture), Sadanobu Matsudaira who initiated ascetic policies in the late 18th century is inside the temple grounds.This is from where the name of the area Kiyosumi-shirakawa derived. Worth a visit if you are visiting the Kiyosumi-shirakawa area.

Small building locked temple but...
This is a small temple that is building locked near the fukagawa edo museum. However, it houses the fifth statue of Jizoes, the Dozo Jizu Bosatsu Zazo erected on 1717 one of only a few elaborate copper statues erected in the mid edo period. I have attached a photo.
