Take it in consideration of Buddhism was founded in India, it should not be unnatural to see Buddhist temple look alike temple in India. But because Buddhism has delivered in Japan differently as its origin, so compare to most of Buddhist temple this one is outrageous. This temple is located next to the world famous Tsukiji Fish market, so it... More

It was my first time in a Buddhist temple and I liked it. The smell of oud was great. However it is not a place that you should visit if you do not have time.

Just love to see the temples in Japan. Anywhere there is one we also stop for a visit. It's about a couple long blocks from the market. When you're in there respect the Temple and keep the voice down.

Temple is open to all denominations and if you choose to enjoy the Buddhist culture, stop by on your way to Tsukiji Market. There are multiple levels and if you need assistance, go up the stairs and turn right in the temple and go to the office. They have English speaking employees. On the left of the building street side... More

We passed by this building on the way to tsukiji market everyday while we were there so we did take a photo but there are much nicer photos yo be taken elsewhere. I would only recommend coming here if it is convenient.

Close to the Tsukiji market and across from the Tsukiji Metro station you'll find this beautiful Buddhist temple. In itself, it is a beautiful site with enough to look at for at least half an hour. You are allowed to take photos inside but please remember that this is a holy site and be respectful at all times. I was... More

We went to the Honganji Temple during the Obon festival. Such fun! Great food and beer. They also have authentic Obon music and dancing. I posted pictures of the festival and the inside of the temple. I am not sure it's okay to normally take pictures inside but I saw many people doing so during the festival. Kevin

This temple is huge, the entrance is very grand. Okay to visit if you have extra time. Inside the temple interior is very cool and well maintain.
