Fukagawa Fudo, Koto

4.0
Daily fire rituals with sutra-reading and drum-beating draw tourists to Fukagawa Fudo, an attractive temple set in a busy area. Featuring a combination of modern and traditional architecture, the temple’s new, futuristic wing features strange prayer hall with 9,500 identical crystal statues of Buddha. Experience the contrast as you enter the old part of the temple, highlighted by an impressive carving of a winking deity. Check out the upstairs gallery, which offers descriptions of an 88-temple, 1,400 km (869 mi) pilgrimage route, then get a pair of traditional straw sandals from the gift shop. The temple also offers monthly classes for sutra-writing and brush-sketching. Plan my Tokyo trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • Stopped flow of walking in the evening. We had let the shrine and sighted from the larger Sutra and drum sound, so take off your shoes. In front of the priest read sutras with a solemn atmosphere in the great Hall was the collapsed bonfire so wrapped up in the sense of the world very different from the mind and body. I think happens to be preaching was helpful but maybe sermon from 5 am.

  • Location of Tomioka hachimangu almost say the. Naritasan Temple Tokyo Betsuin is the official name with.... Unexpectedly, shallow, in the aftermath of the fire temple is majestic, atmosphere. It is recommended in combination with the Tomioka Hachiman shrine.

  • Amazing fire ceremony that you also get to participate. One of my favourite free activities in Tokyo, the least touristy spot for such a beautiful temple, and the more active temple visits than others. JR pass cover to Etchūjima station, which is the closest station.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
