A very different style of temple, continuing ancient traditions but with a very modern feel, with concrete Indian-influenced architecture, and a bright open interior. Friendly staff are on hand to welcome you and hand out information. It is a very interesting temple and definiely worth a visit.

A huge temple on the way to the fish market. A must see to or from Tsukiji. Nice stone work and a statue surrounds the area.👍

An Indian style Buddhist temple with stunning decorations. See it after breakfast at the Tsukiji fish market.

It's free, close to the fish market which is a must in Tokyo, very different yet nice outlook compared to other Japanese Buddhist temples, shining gold on the inside, not crowded (or only I was lucky).

After a visit to Tsukiji Market and before walking on to Ginza, we stopped at Tsukiji Honganji Temple. This is a Buddhist temple and we found it to be quieter than other temples visited in Tokyo. It has beautiful architecture and is a peaceful place to stop and contemplate quietly.

Well maintained historical temple, worth a visit but always crowded with tourists. No entrance fee implied too. Toilet is located at a small building near the main gate.

This is a very old temple and like all temples has a beauty of it own, our guide gave a run down to its origin and history. The temple is right next to the Tokyo fish markets and is a very large area.
