The Hongan-ji Temple is not too far from the Tsukiji Fish Market, and is definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. The design of the outside of the temple is unusual compared to many others in Tokyo, so if you have an interest in architecture it is well worth a look; it has been designed to reference... More

We chanced upon this temple when we are walking towards Tsukiji Fish Market. Very beautiful interior and prayers was on-going when we went inside. We sat a while to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere.

Different from most temples, this place has a lot of ornate decor and a great feel to it. Chairs to sit and meditate and two beautiful mandala drums. Just an overall good vibe here.

If you are heading to the Fish Market (exit 1 from the subway) you will pass by this very old (been on this site since 1657) and architecturally interesting temple. Made of stone in its last rebuild and done in a very Indian style it is worth the look inside.

As long as you have arrived at Tsukiji station of Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line, there is a walk from this station to reach the actual market. There is high chance of running into this temple during your walk. The building exterior is not bad at all. However, it is pretty simple inside. If you are not on a hurry, why... More

Interesting temple which we stumble along our search for the Tsukiji fish market. Not one of main temples that attract a lot of tourist. Has an interesting summary of temple even though the rebuilt temple is not that old.

Chanced upon this temple after our visit to Tsukiji Market. Nice peaceful place with much lesser people. Nice to walk around to see the surrounding and enjoy the serenity.

We came accross this shrine accidentally. In the middle of bustling city area, its very peaceful and gracefully located near the subways.

Nice place to visit in the Chuo district of Tokyo. Very calm and peaceful temple to just sit down and relax for a while. Loved the architecture too. Located very close to the Tsukiji fish market.
