The temple is jodo Shinshu Buddhist and was originally built in Asakusa in 1617 but was destroyed by fire. The second one built on the current site was destroyed in the great Earthquake and rebuilt in 1923 in an Indian style.It is different to any other temple around.

It was on the way from the Tsukiji Fish market to the train station so we stopped by for a look. Whit I found interesting was the design of the temple, a domed roof instead of the normal rectangular ones. You are able to go inside and look if you wanted to.

At a first glance can be misleading... ind ed I thought it was an Indian temple. Indeed, the architecture is related to the Indian and inside is just magnificent. Worth to visit after Tsukiji Fish Market!

This is the successor temple to the original located in Asakusa, which burned in the mid-17th century. It has somewhat of a bizarre appearance, not traditional or historic. A stop here pairs well with a visit to Tsukiji Fish Market while it is still located here, and a sushi meal at one of the many shops around the market.

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.
