Zojoji Temple, Minato
(4.1/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
With a towering main gate and an enormous bell, Zojoji Temple ranks as one of the most important places of worship for Japanese Buddhists. Enter the complex through the imposing two-level wooden gate from 1622--the only piece of the temple to survive World War II intact. Inside the complex, you'll find a gigantic bell from 1673, as well as a cedar tree planted by American president Ulysses Grant. Head behind the great hall and you'll find a cemetery and several graves marking the resting places of six different Tokugawa shoguns, rulers of the country between the 17th and mid-19th centuries. By using our Tokyo itinerary maker, you can arrange your visit to Zojoji Temple and other attractions in Tokyo.

  • Adjacent to Tokyo Tower, Tokyo Prince Hotel. According to the commentary of the Temple from the Mikado of Tokyo Bay looked like. I mean details of age, feel Tokyo's growth. Wonder why from my man big Tokyo Temple pillars in steel and are painted red. Senso-ji Temple is Naritasan shinshoji Temple is so.

  • Here, visited four or five times during the past year. It is a rare Temple doing concerts. Tokyo Tower and set the right spot?. But is it in the story is not the fact, shoguns are buried here. Duke of Hidetada, certainly is one of the six. For the other Hall. Ietsuna, tsunayoshi, Duke, and Duke of yoshimune, surely, is one of the six. Then that Ieyasu in Shizuoka Prefecture Hisashi. Iemitsu in the sunlight. And the last Shogun Yoshinobu Duke kanei-ji Temple near the grave. A total 15, I had. The generals. It's like that.

  • Visitors have visited several times, but a mysterious feeling. The Tokugawa Shogun crypt open to the public and visited. Other foreigners hadn't come good times!
