the temple is simple and small, there is not much to see, the main objective, would be to make your prayers, simple but very interesting, is next to the store aisle

Nothing much around here. Not sure is it because we went during weekdays. Some shops are not even in business.

This is a major Shingon Buddhist temple where the statue is said to have been carved by the saint Kobo Daishi himself. The grounds are expansive and the temple itself is quite beautiful.

Despite being in the middle of residential and shopping but very well maintained and clean. Easy to find, close to the station.

Close to subway, small temple but next to shopping street so good to visit. The main hall has a large, red paper lantern hanging from the ceiling where worshipers can tie small paper notes with wishes to the holding wires.

Like the title say, it's a Chinese temple which means there're some statue to see. However there's no English description at all. I think it's a good place to visit if you are going to the nearby shopping area, osu shopping area.

Not only that you'll be praying respects to the holy spirit here, there're also plenty to see at the nearby market. A lot to do for half a day.

I went there with a Buisness partner from Germany and a Japanese Customer. The customer arranged for a ceremony to pray for business success. Agreat experience for my partner from germany in a real nice wooden structure Shrine.

This is a must visit place on the new year day. Multiple queues of people were trying to get into the temple to express their wishes for the coming year. The temple is relatively small. Because of the festival period, many food stalls were established...More

Good experience how to pray with the Shrine. Throw your coins. Clap your hands and bow twice . And make a wish or just saying thanks .
