Another fine Japanese temple

I liked the exterior and the one interior I could see. I completely missed Japan's tallest seated wooden Buddha statue, but maybe that part was closed when I was there.

It is a must temple in Fukuoka city. Just leave Gion subway station on Exit 4, turn right and walk for less than a minute. Peaceful atmosphere and beautiful surroundings. Its highlight is Japan's tallest seated wooden Buddha statue, located on the 2nd floor of the first building from the temple's entrance.

Recently the team at #TVNIPPON made some videos at Tochoji Temple. The color schemes and beautiful night scenery made it all worth the trip. We recommend all people coming to Fukuoka to spend a few hours looking at the beautiful architecture and sights.

Easy walk by subway or street from the station, and very near lots of other temple complexes. We like this place a lot - there is a quiet area behind the shrine to sit and think, the shrine itself is beautiful, and on the upper floor of the right-hand building (free to enter) there is a newish and very beautiful...

More a bird's eye view of customs and beliefs than genuine old building (heavily restored). Lots of insight to the history of japan here, too.

There's a few around here, make sure to visit them all. There's a beautiful contrast between them. The older and the newer ones, but all with a great story.

The newly completed Hakata Sennen no Mon Gate is at the beginning of Jotenji dori - a good place to begin your temple circuit in Gokushomachi. Take a pen and paper to keep notes so you can remember what temples you visited at end of the day! From the Gate you can easily walk to Waka Hachimangu, Tochoji Temple, Jotenji,... More

The Buddha is located on the 2nd floor, but no photos were allowed. There's a pagoda though. Not difficult to find.
