When you visit Tsukiji Fish market you can easily pass by the Tsukiji Honganji Temple. The temple is very generously decorated from inside. The outside presents Indian style architecture.

Interesting Buddhist Temple, close to the Tsukiji fish market. We were lucky to visit while a wedding was taking place. We didn't think we would be allowed in, but to our surprise, we were graciously invited. What a beautiful ceremony, both bride and groom were wearing gorgeous traditional silk wedding dresses. There was amazing chanting by monks, and large drums... More

Lovely architecture, large wooden doors and an amazing wooden ceiling with 2 beautiful gongs on either side of the 'altar'. A ceremony was in progress which added to the atmosphere.

We saw this passing by on route to the big market and it is the type of building that makes you stop in your tracks. Worth at least a photo.

Went there as part of a tour. Nice but I would not recommend to do a detour to see this temple. There was not a lot of people when we visited

An interesting temple to visit not far from the fish market. The building is very subtle for its location and popularity however considering the distance we walked to see it I would recommend a quick visit to see the interior.

Everybody told us to visit this for sure. It's a fish market as another one. Off course Japanese clean and busy but nice to walk once over and eat something in a good sushi restaurant. But that was it.

I walked by this temple on the way back from the fish market. Was not expecting the history to be so deep for this temple. With the visit of you are already here. Pick up the free brochures and read them as they are informative. An old air organ was also playing when I got there, and a traditional japanese... More

This is the first time i saw Japanese Buddhism temple in Indian Style. The space inside is quite spacious, and it gives you a peaceful and tranquil atmosphere. I stayed inside for an hour and enjoy the moment after i shopped in Tsukiji fish market. The temple provided a special service, you can light the sandal wood incense to pray... More
