We loved the site. It was recently redone and it is a beautiful location surround by plants and great restaurants. A family affair or a couples treat. Educational and worth the visit.

This is a newly renovated temple. So great for a photographer. Colors are bright and snap in the sun. This is also near many great eating places and historical Chinatown.

This is the symbol of successful migration of Chinese people in Japan. It is awesome architecture and with full of color make people wander if we are in Japan or China. It is very interesting to see how the same religion (Buddhism) has been understood differently between Japan and China.

It is a Chinese temple, which is dedicated to Guan Yu, a general of the Han Dynasty. If you want to enter inside, a donation is required. Otherwise, it is free to take a picture from outside.
