Ikegami Hommon-ji Temple, Ota

(4.2/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Visit Ikegami Hommon-ji Temple, erected in 1252 on the site where revered Buddhist priest Nichiren died on his way to treatment at a hot spring. You'll have a chance to observe the oldest five-story pagoda in the region, with its rare 16th-century architecture (it even survived the Tokyo bombing of 1945). Be aware you'll need to conquer a 96-step climb to the complex, and during October, on the 12th day especially, hundreds of thousands of devotees line up to pay their respects to Nichiren. Add Ikegami Hommon-ji Temple and other attractions to your Tokyo trip itinerary using our Tokyo vacation builder.
