One of the best temples to visit. There were no tourists on the day that we went there. Just a handful of Japanese locals. The fire ceremony was quite unusual from other Buddhist ceremonies that we have seen. The accompanying drums made the whole experience...More

We made it in time to watch the praying ceremony. It was fascinating to watch and listen to the drums, chanting, and horns. Definitely a memorable experience.

This place is very close to Monzen-Nakacho Subway station and on the way to Tomioka Hachimangu. The narrow and short road to the temple was nice surrounded by small shops. I saw a building having a kind of sanscript letters under renovation and a big...More

This temple is so beautiful and ancient from the outside to inside. It has many floors. I and my friend went there on the New Year. We were so lucky to have chance to hear the monks worshipping. It was so amazing.

You'll need to find out what times they do the fire ceremony, but I highly recommend you attend one. The ceremony lasts about 15 minutes, and is free to attend. As you leave the main ceremony area, you turn right and walk through a narrow...More

Conveniently located not far from Monzennakacho Station on the Tokyo Metro this temple, like some of the others in Tokyo, seems to have bitten the bullet of modernity and now combines the old with the very new. There is a new modern wing attached to...More
