Yushima Seido, Bunkyo

(140+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
Explore the Confucian temple of Yushima Seido, which introduced Confucian teachings to the culture and houses what is said to be the largest statue of Confucious in the world. Take a quiet, contemplative stroll around the peaceful but unruly garden, keeping an eye out for the famous pistacia chinensis tree, which was grown from a seed taken from a tree at Confucious' grave in China in 1915. Much quieter than surrounding shrines, you can expect some meditative time to yourself here, away from the bustle and crowds of the city.

  • Old Confucian Temple, which is rare in Japan. And so is the choice of black for all walls. Unique roof decoration, too. It's a very tranquil place, probably because it's surrounded by walls, and features a small park.
  • Confucius shrine, very simple and all black style. Interesting to visit as many other shrines tend to have flourishing gold, details and colors. There's also a statue of the master in the park.
  • 夏休みで開いてなかった。もう一度チャレンジ
  • The edge of the building are not entrerenus more than that. Not important une.esthetisation. This gives a crude appearance. He did not marchandeisation either: it is far from the temples and shrines. If so, Confucianism has influenced Japanese society, what remains of his representation of n is not at its height. However, to do nothing for the beautiful statue of Confucius.

  • Build a Confucius Temple instead of to Holy Temple built in the private residence (currently the Ueno Park) to ensure the promotion of Confucianism is the fifth Shogun, Tokugawa tsunayoshi, and Tokugawa 0/1690 (1690), Hayashi razan, Tokugawa tsunayoshi, it was renamed "Dacheng Hall". Including the building of a set that comes with it is called "Church". Then Shohei slope study place of the shogunate Government Shohei (would be:) became the Meiji government changed after Tokyo, Tsukuba University and Ochanomizu-also became the origin of the University, the academic birthplace of education.
