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.

  • We will stamp of the shrines and temples of Japan. Katsushika-Shibamata Taishakuten General Guy hard well image that just preceded the temple is a Taisho Showa great temple. Featured at the weekend is not possible during the week. Laid-back air is like being in the film. Turtle good even on rainy days. You can feel the history can visit the inside of the main hall. The stamp is like period does not. Check advance is recommended here.

  • I visited the holiday celebrations from professed past. From when you got to the home of the station was very busy. Family will think so much not to visit a shrine in Tokyo's congestion better.

  • Tora-San's famous Shibamata Taishakuten. They wanted to go again and finally wish had been fulfilled. , However, is the crowded shrine is Taishakuten is surprisingly small and cozy and had returned, was impressive. It is still 10 minutes where you can enjoy sights.

  • Beautiful temple and not so crowded , totally recommended
  • The temple is beautiful if you like wood carvings should not miss.
  • 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
