This is a beautiful temple close to the Tokyo Tower. It is about 3/4 mile from the JR line. There is a good ramen place two blocks away.

It is so amazing when you are walking to there that you will see how it is big and special. If you like temple stuff, must go there for toyko tower too.

This temple is pretty quiet and you could probably complete it within 20mins. Not a must-go in my opinion. Nice to take a photo of Zojoji temple with Tokyo tower behind.

This is a really fun place to visit aside from the beautiful temple, statues and gardens there’s so many vendors and food for sale in the area. Don’t be afraid to try the different types of food because really everything is delicious.
