We met our tour guide here. This is a good place to meet people. The restrooms are very clean. There was a service going on inside, but you can walk in quietly. There's brochures available in German, English, and other languages. It's not far from the train station and very close to Tsujiki Market.

This temple is very near Tsukiji station and Tsukiji Market. The temple looks beautiful inside and out. The building welcomes visitors. There were brochures available and little collectible cards with pictures of the temple. There was even a cute stamping station to create your own custom memento.

The truth is that the temple is not very special but it's in the way from the fish market to Ginza. And that drags a lot of attention.

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.

Thank Koen B
