The temple here is very easy on the eyes. If you are in the area, it’s worth checking out. There is a traditional Japanese garden with coy fish too. The whole complex was very clean as well.

Worth a look if you enjoy Buddhist culture, & includes a nice Zen garden that wasn’t too crowded. Also has the compulsory strip of shops entrance, but not too commercialised.

A bit out of the way from Tokyo, but nice temple to visit especially during the wind chimes festival - hundreds of wind chimes.

This temple is walking distance from Emblem Hostel. They sell yummy treats and if you want to stay for the sutra, just ask for the schedule at the information center.

One of the beautiful shrines one must visit to know Japan's ritual/culture and day to day living style. Locals visit this shrine on almost all festival times.

Great temple opened daily 9 to 4 pm. First time temple for me, beautiful make sure you have at least 1 hour to invest, you can stay outside enjoy nice lake in the garden, also there is local market right after you leave the temple.

The temple is so nice, but the garden was great with a waterfall and different little shrines. The surrounding streets are also great to wander around - so picturesque.
