Neighbourhood: Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this day, and there are long-standing restaurants with geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.

No trip to Tokyo would be complete without a trip to a Buddist temple. This one will give you all the sights, sounds, smells and visuals you will need.
It is located in town and is easily accessible to subway stations.
The odd and maybe somewhat inappropriate aspect of the area is the commercial zone just outside the temple. It takes away from the solemnity found at other temples in Asia.

Very impressive wooden designs and live prayer sessions. Observed quite a few groups come in and participate in ceremonies. You see at your leisure.

Being in Tokyo itself with 37 million people living here, this place gets very crowded. But that what Tokyo is all about so we enjoyed our visit to this temple.

It's a little shrine in a great district of Kagurazaka where you'll find many unique shops and restaurants.

It may seem a bit out of place, located in a busy shopping district, but this temple is really a beautiful building, even if the surroundings aren’t entirely peaceful.

We visited the temple again and took a few pictures this time. It’s a quiet place to reflect if your heart desires.

Never been here before and I do found this temple is kinda underrated for foreigners. I'm a temple lover and each temple that I discovered is unique in its own way. Will definitely give a visit by next year.

This temple is located right next to the subway so it is very convenient for anyone to visit. It wasn't too crowded but I wish the tourists would be more mindful of their trash. Please be respectful!
