#11 of 1,334 in Historic Sites in Tokyo
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.

  • Walked passed this temple after our food crawl at Tsukiji fish market so we went for a few pictures.  more »
  • Out of the subway station can be seen, right next to the Tsukiji market, the outside look very spectacular. Temples can be incense-and can be photographed inside. Morning to go, not many people, to build the market time can be a stroll.

  • Buildings maintained, enters the Café and shop in the premises. Is not liked personally, before cherry trees, tall trees are planted space, but is the Tsukiji hongan-ji Temple within itself as a place to soothe the mind, from this visit regularly will continue.
