Situated in front of Tokyo Tower Zojoji Temple and surrounds are very impressive. The adjoining buildings and gardens are full on decoration and ornaments. The inside of the main temple is beautifully ornate. An easy 800m walk from Hamamatsucho Station.

Beautiful temple. Numerous buildings. Centrally located. Definitely worth a visit. Unfortunate that there's some noise that distracts from the hotel next door.

Our first temple that we visited in Tokyo, adjacent to our hotel. Beautifully maintained and surrounded by gardens and statues, it was a pleasure to watch the ceremonies.

We stayed near the Daimon area and went to this temple since it was nearby. Zojoji Temple was very quiet and felt calm and peaceful. Tokyo Tower appears in the background which makes a nice photograph!

We wondered around the grounds of the temple without paying to enter the displays. The architecture is incredible, massive wooden roof structure and doors. The gardens are lovely and the temple is considered an important cultural property. Worth visiting but cannot comment on the exhibitions.

This was across the road from our hotel and should have gone here first. It was pretty good by the standards we saw at others, but typically, gets crowded. We went on our own, and were passed by I reckon 10 tour groups? And they...More

If you plan to visit the Tokyo Tower or your hotel is not that far away, I would recommend a stop at this temple. I felt the temple and grounds itself was a little above average when compared to a few other temples and shrines...More
