A very large Buddhist Temple near the heart of Ginza. Admission is free and there is reading material about the temple that is available in English.

Not the best of locations next to the fish market, but the area was so spotlessly clean, I'm sure it doesn't have a very big impact even when the market is open. Well worth a visit. Lots of history, but the temple that is now...More

This temple has very unique architecture compared to the other buddhist temples in and around Tokyo. There was a very sweet older Japanese man that greeted us at the entrance, invited us in, told us we could take photos and provided us with English literature...More

Very near the impressive Tsukiji Seafood Market, this relatively new temple, built in the 1930s may not seem as impressive as the other temples when looking at its interior, however, the interiors reveal something more interesting. You can tell that a lot of work went...More

Worth visiting if you are around Tsukiji area, It is very near to Tsukiji fish market. Allocate about 30-45 min to walk around and photo taking. This buddhist temple is build with Indian architecture design because buddha is originate from India. No entrance fee.

A European looking Buddhist hall that is good for taking pictures, with signboards around the compound that tells the story of the place if you're a history buff. Main hall is only open for worshipers but their courtyard is open.

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
