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

It looks so big and impressive from the outside, but you are only accessing the main hall once in the door, very ornate, different style and ok for a quick viewing. But much more appears off limits.

I wasn't looking for this temple but popped in as I was walking through. It looks exactly like the photo shown..not much to see apart from taking a few pictures outside as in the temple itself there was a talk or debate in progress which I didn't understand as it was in Japanese..maybe if I did it would have had...

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.

Thank Ralph W
