The temple and surrounds are lovely, during the day there are stalls set up selling food and secondhand ware, the train station is close by.

More than expected
May 2019 • Couples
We had a few hours to spare in Tokyo, so took the train
to Nishiarai. I was not expecting more than a temple, so
the beautiful gardens, the lake with large koi and the
numerous other smaller structures and statues were an
added bonus.
The Sojiji temple is quite large and has a most impressive
interior. Not many visitors, so we had a leisurely stroll, with
plenty of photo opportunities.
A very charming area, with lots to see. Well worth a visit.

This temple is one of the best and most interesting temples I have ever seen in Japan. Also, the pagoda, market and historical structure of nearby area were exciting to me.

Amazing place.

We walked here from our rental apartment and arrived during a prayer ceremony. It was breathtaking. Only two or three people were around, so it felt very quiet and serene. We walked around the grounds and sat by the pond. Beautiful, underrated place.

Wonderful experience
May 2019 • Family
We visited with our adult kids. The temple was very popular on the day we went. Many Japanese there wore traditional kimono. It was wonderful to see. We cleansed ourselves with the smoke and then entered the temple. It is a wonderful experience seeing all the visitors doing the same. We bought a fortune each and mine was a bad fortune so I tied it to the fence provided as is the custom. The walk down to the temple is filled with shops selling all sorts of souvenirs and sweets. If you want something to eat other than sweets, you need to go off on one of the side lanes but you cannot walk and eat here, it is prohibited so you must eat standing up in front of or to the side of the store. Another thing too which is the same through most of Tokyo. there are no rubbish bins so make sure you take a plastic bag in your bag to put any rubbish into. Some shops will take back your rubbish and dispose of it but if not you will need to carry it with you until you get home. This is a must see when visiting Tokyo

A quiet place
Jun 2018 • Solo
A very accessible place. Quite pleasant if you’re looking for a place to meditate and relax. Go there early morning or after 4pm not too many people and lots of places to sit and appreciate the fresh air and water. You can also do the usual checking of your fortune at the right side, and the buying of souvenirs (rice crackers) just outside the temple.

Nice Shrine

The temple here is very easy on the eyes. If you are in the area, it’s worth checking out. There is a traditional Japanese garden with coy fish too. The whole complex was very clean as well.

Worth a look if you enjoy Buddhist culture, & includes a nice Zen garden that wasn’t too crowded. Also has the compulsory strip of shops entrance, but not too commercialised.
