    Environment is virtually barrier-free. It is a large, peaceful garden. Under the tree are small koshin placed some. It was a flavor scene.

    Very close to the metro station Nippori JR Yamanote Line to Shinjuku this temple stands by the cemetery of Yanaka, very quiet and peaceful immaculately maintained with lots of plants and flowers is there much peace. Recommend a visit to the temple and cemetery before switching to yanaka Street. Sin stairways very hard with the stroller.

    Nice little temple, for the beginning of your Yanesen walking tour. You can see the bronze buddha statue the moment you enter. It was very quiet, no tourists (besides me!) & little locals too.  more »

    this is a very nice and mostly very quiet place to visit. I especially enjoy the fact that this is not one of the most crowded places of the many shrines and temples in Tokyo. still it is very easily reached by JR. you can go there in the afternoon or morning and just sit and relax a few minutes or meditate. If you visit at the right time you might even get to hear some chanting.

    So quiet and peaceful here. I love the big Buddha and a few of the monks speak English. The cherry tree here is one of the prettiest I've ever seen so come during cherry blossom blooming!

    Beautiful temple off the beaten track but close to Nippori station. Very serene with a unusual architecture.

    The place is so peaceful but at the same time so close to busy Nipori Station. The statue of Buddha is just incredible amongst the trees, and it's over 400 years old.

    The temple grounds aren't very large but they are beautiful and serene

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.
