After being in the fish market round the corner this was a little piece of quite reflection. Service was going on but was able to just sit and let it wash over me. Welcomed at the door and given an English information booklet.

I always make a stop here to clear my mind and enjoy the beauty of this temple. It may not be my religion, but I feel welcomed and enjoy my time here.

I was fortunate enough to catch part of a ceremony being performed here, which was very calming to be part of. The outside of the temple is fairly bland compared to the inside, which is beautifully decorated, ornate but simple at the same time. Worth visiting and then heading across the road to the fish market!

There are guides to welcome you. One with very good English. The interior is beautiful and we were able to film the Buddhist priest working. The guide was interesting and informed us about the history of the temple and some of the statues.

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.
