A spectacular fire ritual takes place very 2 hours from 9am to 5pm everyday; there are digital billboard displays the ritual schedule; there is a veiwing platform for audience. But, don't mistake the monks for performers or the ritual for an entertainment.  The majority of...More

Probably the best temple complex experience I've had for years. From the actual size and possible interaction with it as a tourist, to the importance, style and design of it, and its surrounding area too. This was one of my fav tourist experiences in Tokyo.

We made it in time to watch the praying ceremony. It was fascinating to watch and listen to the drums, chanting, and horns. Definitely a memorable experience.

This place is very close to Monzen-Nakacho Subway station and on the way to Tomioka Hachimangu. The narrow and short road to the temple was nice surrounded by small shops. I saw a building having a kind of sanscript letters under renovation and a big...More

This temple is so beautiful and ancient from the outside to inside. It has many floors. I and my friend went there on the New Year. We were so lucky to have chance to hear the monks worshipping. It was so amazing.
