We have visited this temple 2 times Beautiful. We are a time in the evening, and once during the day. Beautiful temple, that one usually sees in movies. With a lot of content and culture of the Japanese.

This temple is on the well-trodden tourist route in Tokyo and will give you exposure to Buddhism on a surface level. The main Shinto temple in Tokyo is far more spiritual and rustic.

Normally two dog statues guard a temple but here two tigers instead of dogs for some reason. You need to go up hill from Iidabashi station for few minutes to reach there. My purpose of visit is to buy soy sauce flavored hand griled solid...More

It's a nice piece of history and worth a trip. I actually enjoyed walking around the Asakusa neighborhood more than the temple itself. Maybe I'm not much of a temple person but had a good time with everything else the neighborhood has to offer.

Worth a visit - as most of these temples are. Take you time to have a good look around. Defiantly worth finding.

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.
