Pay a visit to Kawasaki Daishi Heiken-ji Temple, a Buddhist temple known as the headquarters of the Chizan sect of Shingon Buddhism. Founded in 1128, the large temple complex features an imposing main hall--destroyed by fire in 1945 and rebuilt in 1964--made from steel and concrete in the style of the previous Heian period. Chief among the objects of worship at the temple remains the image of a Buddhist priest, Kukai, a man considered the chief driving force behind the spread of Shingon Buddhism in the country.

  • I went on a weekday, but I was free! Approach this section of the road is narrow and shops on both sides "tap candy ' said was selling it! You will find specialty here!      Did not buy it because I do not like candy! Doll's thinks-, please make a wish in the incense-, but I didn't need to buy incense on their own! Wished, as smoke is, and surely nothing without it! Others bought from it! Had hoped, raise your donation-and big wish is secret (^ _-)-☆

  • It is God that wishes come true... etc, I hope that "want it" in a specific, more detailed image to communicate and want to be beautiful, longing in this style that dwell in the Kawasaki Daishi. Let us not forget that you could if they firmly fulfill a wish, always go to thank Mairi!

  • Are available throughout the year, but the end of the year is very crowded. Just more than stores, etc., will eat various things. Picks go in the daytime on weekdays, almost everywhere, leisurely stroll, we recommend buying a candy.

  • Founded in 1128, it is the headquarters of the Chizan sect of Shingon Buddhism. I visited the Kawasaki Daishi for the new year. An interesting alternative to other famous temples around Tokyo.
  • ふりんが大好き(⌒▽⌒)
  • Street is mostly empty if visit on working days.
  • Every year this year? To encourage. Also, celebrating in many stores is not so fun. Every year comes out same business in the same location, so easy.

  • Only good-luck charm, famous, and on new year's day in the crowded anyway. However, the recommended age to place worth going once and I think so. Also bought souvenirs, such as candy, kuzumochi is famous in the Mall, so on the way back home.
