I visited a number of temples in Yanaka and they were all gorgeous - Tennoji was no exception! A really beautiful spot that is well worth a visit when you're in Yanaka. Only takes 10 minutes to walk around the temple grounds & soak it...More

It's small, but very peaceful. I went just to see the bronzed Buddah there. It's a small temple , but it's also not far from Nezu Shrine so why not add both to your tour.

Not much to do but immerse yourself & take photos, but the building, the park, the silence, the serenity, the atmosphere of the surrounding area - everything seems to be working together to make this a very nice cultural visit. You get to see the...More

A nice temple more like a garden than a temple. The feeling of calm here washes over you. If you are in the area it's near the train station so worth a visit. You can also visit the cemetery that's close by! While here we...More

I stumbled upon this beautiful temple accidentally in 2011 and have been revisiting it every time I'm in Japan. Tennoji Temple is very small but houses an amazing Daibutsu statue. During spring you can enjoy some very nice cherryblossom trees and onigawara too. If you're...More

Visited this site while walking around Yanaka. It is a nice quite temple with a large Buddha statue just inside the entrance. It is close to Yanaka cemetery and worth a quick visit if in area.

This is a small temple which is worth going to if you are in the vicinity. You only need a short visit. There is a large Buddha in the grounds which is quite striking.

While not large, this is an easy little temple to get to from the nearby station and it's very peaceful and quiet in this area too so if you're tired of all the people, it's a good area to explore. Nearby is also Yanaka Ginza...More

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
