Largest stone temple in Japan

A temple that looks like an Indian temple is quite unusual in Japan. This one is also fairly new, it dates back from just 1934. But it is very welcoming. There are free lectures... read more

This was a surprise find after leaving Tsukiji - it's built in an Indian Hindu temple style but is Buddhist. There was some work being done around it but well worth a look in. Very Japanese interior with lots of gold paint. The monks were leading prayers with some visitors which include chanting and drumming - fantastic. We sat there... More

While walking to the fish market we decided to go into this Temple. So glad we did! In such a main street area with so much else going on we were amazed at the serenity and beauty of this Temple. Placards inside and out discuss the history of this unique building and the price was perfect ... FREE! We were... More

After a busy day walking the streets in the city. This was a very nice place to rest and relax. There is a very peaceful atmosphere with beautiful architecture and the opportunity to learn a little history and culture.

The main gate of the temple was the meeting place of Tsukiji Walking Tour and Japanese Washoku Cooking Class. We arrived so early and went to visit the temple. Very impressive interior and architecture. You can stamp 4 different kinds of pictures on a postcard provided by the temple.

The temple was very peaceful, and the temple is beautiful, but it wasn't as great as I expected. It probably would've been more interesting if there was a service, but I went about 30 mins before it closed so my time in there felt rushed. I was able to take some great pictures though. The fish market is right next... More

There was a service going on when we visited with loads of scouts. It was free to go in and attend. A nice enough building but not worth going out of your way to get here.

We walked past this temple on the way to the fish market and stopped in on the way back. Lovely peaceful interior with a how-to on correctly presenting incense at the front. Worth a look if you're in the area.

A nice temple near the Tsukiji market and well worth a look. It has some unusual aspects such as a pipe organ at the back , a chandelier and seating almost similar to a church.. There are also free clean public toilets here which might be useful info!
