  • Not too impressive, it is located in the Ueno Park. But like Southeastern or Tibet temple instead. I felt award saw in Tokyo, Japan. Do not like it at all!  more »
  • Only the face of the Buddha remains at this site, part of the Kanei-ji Temple complex. The Great Buddha was destroyed in the great Kanto earthquake of 1923. Worth a visit on your tour of Ueno Park  more »
  • When you enter you may hear a sound of a large gong sound that will be someone of that Buddha faith ready to enter and worship. You can also purchase gifts there too.  more »

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.
