Starting with the sound of Japanese drums and Triton's trumpet, you will be gravitated to experience the essence of mystic Buddhist ritual. Rhythm of drums and Buddhist sutra chanting are so dynamic and you feel like the fire will burn all bad things surrounding you. It is magnificent as if you are watching rock band's live gig.

If you could find any help, giving your own wish might be a memorial experience! The temple it's self is also very fascinated and attractive. They have beautiful lotus ceiling picture on... More

This is a very attractive shrine with many interesting exhibits even without the fire ceremony. You need to come at a time when there ceremony is fine but your hotel can help you.

You'll need to find out what times they do the fire ceremony, but I highly recommend you attend one. The ceremony lasts about 15 minutes, and is free to attend. As you leave the main ceremony area, you turn right and walk through a narrow passageway all the way around the backside of the ceremony area. I think this has... More

Conveniently located not far from Monzennakacho Station on the Tokyo Metro this temple, like some of the others in Tokyo, seems to have bitten the bullet of modernity and now combines the old with the very new. There is a new modern wing attached to the temple which houses some very psychedelic exhibits including a corridor with 9500 miniature crystal... More

In this place you can see how the worship is done with a variety of activities, including the use of drums. This show can you follow in accordance with the schedule there. Worth to visit!

This is a very respected temple in old part of Tokyo. There are impressive Buddhist carvings inside and a prayer ceremony held each hour with Taiko drums. The area has some interesting old shops selling traditional sweets. Fukagawa-meshi (rice with crams) is Tokyo's local food which should be tried while on visit here. Very down-to-earth quotidian Tokyo which you might... More
