Nice just to step in and listen to the prayers, not worth special travel for it though. Better to wander around nearby Tsukiji area

Absolutely touristic place. Nothing of sombreness of Buddhism. Hordes of people jostling with each other to find a place to see the temple. A must visit attraction.

Just down the street from the fish market. Worth a visit, there is no admission fees and it is a traditional Buddhist temple. A nice stop to take some pictures and join the locals for their daily prayers.

If you are in the area, you can look at it inside, otherwise it is not worth your trip there. It is next block from Tsukiji Fish Market

This is not really a tourist spot, but it's open and many people use to enter in and out from this temple as short-cuts. The architecture design of this temple is very unique especially with the blue main door. It's an amazing building.

We went to this temple after visiting the fish market and it was really worth it. It is a place not focused on tourists, many local people was visiting when i was there.

What i was fascinated about this was that it was soooo busy but people found the time, peace and space to pray, cleanse their bodies with incense and find humility, passion and friendship amongst total strangers
