  • Sculpture as Taishakuten in a Tora-San Temple is famous, on the other side of the main building you can see at an additional cost. Unimaginably dense and delicate sculptures. Pay your money is worth seeing. Back garden is very beautiful.

  • From childhood remember the mother is also born in Shibamata Taishakuten and Nakamise well played! With such episodes, tourist information! Visited and collected nokyo-Sho is awsome! Also can enjoy well. Shibamata station in addition to the bronze statue of Tora-San Sakura's newly installed! As kudzu starch cake with grass dumpling, rice crackers, and Wakamatsu can be chillin relaxing! Extending legs until the Edogawa River once more relaxed and you want to do I think.

  • Tora-San was once we went home to Shibamata Taishakuten. Station Tora-San's statue of the saddle. Through the quaint gate and the splendid main gate. It rained in has many worshippers. Unlike the other temples and shrines, dressed elderly person. Temple's beloved downtown is.

  • 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
