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

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

This small, quiet temple, very near Okachimachi Station, can easily go unnoticed. The flight of steps with the flags on each side might be overlooked as you shop for KitKats and snacks at Niki Confectionary (Niki no Kashi) just across the street from the temple...More

Ueno, Asakusa
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
