It is extremely easy to access. It is located in the middle of the city and right by the Tsukiji fish market. Just a quick hop after eating at the fish market and you are there. It is a gorgeous and peaceful place. The contrast...More

Enter the temple to pray and show respect to God. Very ornate; of Indian influence. There are very clean restrooms inside and no fee to enter.

In a country of wooden temples, shrines, and palaces, this one is unique. We were fortunate to visit during Odon, and sat and attended the prayers. Stop in on your way to the nearby fish market.

While walking to the famous fish market, I stopped in this shrine to check it out and I liked it. The decor is very detailed and elegant, the AC is cool and the bathrooms are open to the public. It was a great quick visit!

Does not fit with all of the other temples and shrines in Japan. It is made out of stone. Very nice inside, you are able to take pictures inside.

We visited the Honganji Temple on the way to the Tsukiji fish markets. It was a good visit and pleasant to sit inside.

This is a main site of the Jodo sect of Buddhism, practiced by most adherents living in Japan. It's very India-influenced, as seen from the outer architecture, and is rich in gold, red, and shiny furnishings inside, with Japanese tatami mats and other Japanization elements....More

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
