Fukagawa Fudodo, Koto

4.4
Daily fire rituals with sutra-reading and drum-beating draw tourists to Fukagawa Fudodo, 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.

  • 深川不動尊の最大の特徴は浄土宗や真言宗、日蓮宗というような宗派を問わず、先祖供養や回向を先祖のためにあげて頂けることです。御彼岸やお盆には是非深川不動堂にご参拝くださいね。もちろん、護摩祈祷で不動明王さんにお願いするのも超強力です。 Fukagawa fudodo is the place where we prey for their ancestors and has been blessed...  more »
  • So the number of visitors is different and I was surprised. Approach to fudo-do any stalls out and it was crowded.

  • Truly amazing experience watching the fire ceremony and the follow up ritual of touching the wooden god statue. There are several room with many different small statues which can be visited and an amazing corridor with millions of small glass stupas. A true gem!
  • 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.
