Tsukiji Honganji Temple, Chuo
(3.5/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Experience the calm tranquility of Tsukiji Honganji Temple, a Jodo Shinsu Buddhist site boasting an eclectic fusion of architectural styles. Originally constructed in the 17th century, the temple suffered from both fire and earthquake, with the structure you see today largely built in the 1930s. Approaching the entrance, note the South Asian influence on the ornate architecture, intended to reflect Buddhist, Hindu, and Islamic styles. Inside, discover artifacts of many eras of Buddhist and Japanese history, the significance of which have made this temple a popular pilgrimage site. Look for the gleaming pipe organ manufactured in West Germany, an unusual sight in a Buddhist temple. Plan your visit to Tsukiji Honganji Temple and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Tokyo vacation planner.

  • This time, as the building's tour. Chuta was like a monster you can find lots of unique figurines, so look at the strange animals, and, it was interesting.

  • Because it was during the week of December visitors (that's what) was sparsely. Walk through the large square and takes you to the main staircase. It is a refreshing space what went inside and read sutras with the smell of incense, the heart is washed.

  • Why did this building, almost like images of the temples of Japan and to be able to freely watch the Ginza, the architecture while producing a quiet dignity across the road outside Tsukiji, I really like this??
