As I pass by almost weekly at Zojirushi Temple I can honestly say the most beautiful times to visit Zojoji are the beginning of spring during Sakura / Cherry blossom usually late march and around autumn time when the leaves change colours, late November in the past years . But still winter and summer have their magic too. The Temple... More

We visited this attraction as part of our group tour of Japan and enjoyed very much the garden, as well as the story of the ""Jiji" figures.

This is a really cool temple at the base of Tokyo Tower. It made for a great backdrop to take pictures.

This was my idea of a really nice Shinto temple with a great atmosphere. Close by the hotel and Tokyo Tower and a great coffee place Le Pain Quotidian

Visited last Sunday to discover that there was a special occasion at the temple. Buddhist monks were celebrating in the temple and outside there were many locals in traditional dress. Have visited before when there were great food markets but they weren't there today. Short walk to Tokyo tower.

The temple is very near to the Tokyo Tower so if you're done there, you can head on here for a quick visit. The temple is nice and there are many cherry blossom trees planted in the area. Good for visiting for a short time.

The temple is located very close to Tokyo Tower. We got there around 5.30pm and the temple had already closed for the day (including the food and tourist vans). However, we were still able to have a good wander around.

I was very surprised by how busy and commercial the area was in comparison to other buddist temples I have visited in other countries. Very difficult to get close to the main alter due to crowds of people, no feeling serenity. Lots of shops and stalls close by selling cheapish souvenirs and food.

Neighbourhood Profile
Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi
Odaiba is an entertainment hotspot with a giant ferris wheel, concert halls, amusement arcades and lots of shopping. It also boasts Oedo-onsen-monogatari, a hotspring that recreates old Edo-era ambiance and is very popular with foreign visitors. Shiodome has ultra-modern office buildings where you can often find restaurants with a great high-rise view of Tokyo. The neighboring area of Shinbashi is a district of much older commercial buildings and it's a great place to join 'salary men' enjoying a drink and snacks at street stalls under the railway bridges after work.
