It situated in the centre of Ueno, close to the train station and within some small but busy streets, lots of small shops around.
You walk upstairs then you see the temple. Marishiten (摩利支天) is so important to Japanese and Buddhism because they believe Marishiten...More
I chanced upon a medium sized Nichiren Buddhist temple tucked among the busy Ameyoko shops. It's easy to miss but there's a stair that leads to the temple that entombs Marishiten, an ancient Indian goddess who gives vitality, strength, and wealth, and gets rid of...More
While walking and shopping along the Ameyoko Shopping Street, I came across this small temple. It is near the popular Niki no Kashi store. Needed to climb a few steps up just to take a photo of this quiet temple in the midst of the...More
This is quite a unique Buddhist temple as it sits on top of a grocery/souvenir shop. Walking along the rows of shops, it's easy to miss from afar since the temple itself is a level higher than the street but it's quite imposing if you...More
I was very happy to find this temple near Ueno-okachimachi station in a busy shopping area. The temple is of medium size but in perfect condition. The paint was as shiny as the unpainted wood. It looked brand new. I am always happy to see...More

Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
