Tsukiji Honganji Temple, Chuo

3.6
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.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi.
