This is a Buddhist Rinzai Zen temple, located in TaitÅ, Tokyo, Japan.

Zenshoan Reviews & Ratings

  • Was walking by there and being attracted to the golden Buddha. Typical Buddhist temple with graveyard surrounding.

  • This temple is nearest one to Shonai King (alive King in Japan)

  • Amazing

  • Nice place

  • 東京メトロ千駄木駅から徒歩5分、、団子坂を登っていくと左手にあります。 山岡鉄舟が明治維新に殉じた人々の菩提を弔うために創建したとの事。 三遊亭圓朝が蒐集した幽霊画のコレクションが有名で、毎年夏に幽霊画展が催されます(¥500) 美しい幽霊、恐ろしい幽霊、妖怪等々規模は小さいながらも充実しています。 見たら涼しくなる上に、そして展示室も非常に冷房が効いているので羽織るものがあった方が良いです。 靴は脱いで上がり、スリッパ等もないので、靴下を持参して良かったです。
