3.9/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web
Admire extraordinary wooden carvings and a lovely landscape garden among pine trees and bonsais at Shibamata Taishakuten, a Buddhist shrine with impressive gates set in a busy Tokyo suburb. Founded in 1629, the temple is a popular spot for locals, providing a calm atmosphere and quality craftsmanship to admire. The Edo River flows just east of the temple grounds, while the nearby road serves as a traditional street market with shops, stands, and restaurants all the way to the temple gates. Lying about 10 km (6 mi) from Asakusa, the temple sits some seven minutes by foot from Shibamata station on the Keisei line.

  • Daytime holiday without so many people, was sightseeing. From dumplings and buckwheat, crackers and such, like downtown atmosphere. You can tour with Tiger's Memorial Hall and ferry. Even going to pay back the sculpture Gallery and gardens where you can enjoy.

  • One of Tokyo's most beautiful temples. Wanna visit here again.
  • The place is beautiful but it felt like a tourist trap with a guy doing some performance with his monkey.
  • Well worth to visit
  • Generation familiar with Tora-San is where I go. Josh dumpling shop and souvenir from the temple while walking downtown feel. Feel the culture of Japan has been important to history, ranging from buildings and trees. This is where I can feel the power spot and. Or even yagiri passing near from here, you walk slowly.
