  • One of best temple in Japan. I visited this place in 2007. Its always crowded but cool atmosphere. If you want pictures of a lot of tourists in your pictures of this magnificent structure and surrounding area. Better to visit early morning. This is one of tourist destination in Japan you must visit. Also you can shopping on these area and get souvenirs. Visit the incense for good fortune. 100 yen for a good luck charm. I will visit again to this temple with my child. A must visit place for a visitor of Tokyo. The temple is very large and beautiful with lots of History. Very well maintained. Although very crowded during the most of the day, this place is still a very nice for a foreigner. Lots of Street shopping and eating options available around. Great place to visit in Tokyo. The Buddhist temple is magnificent. There are many souvenir shop. This is one of the best place to buy souvenirs of Japan. Very authentic traditional Japanese stuff available here. a good spot for a good photo. The area is surrounded by souvenirs and sweet shop, very cheerful and fun atmosphere. Staff only accept cash and do not speak English so be mentally prepared :) a must-visit for first time Tokyo visitors.

  • Truly amazing place... The architecture of the build was something new that I have ever seen being a foreigner in Japan. I went to this place at afternoon around 12pm. Somehow this place made me feel that it would be much better at night. So I came back at night again and it's truly awesome. You can also see skytree from here. Such a lively surroundings and this place will be absolute beauty on a full moon night.

  • Lots of shops to find just the right souvenir. Food vendors have amazing selections. Just make sure you pack lightly and wear comfortable shoes. The temple is very interesting and has plenty of photo opportunities.

  • Beautiful experience. Lovely temple. Will definitely recommend a visit. Dont forget to shake the box and pull out a stick to read your fortune, its a fun element but definitely gives you something to think about. Must visit. I would certainly return.

  • Old Buddhist temple totally renovated, supposedly the oldest one in Tokyo. Interesting place, and the traditional procession on Culture Day is nice. But it is very crowded, and a good number of the local market stalls sell low-quality trinkets only. Still, easy to reach and good for sightseeing in the capital.
