Great area with lots of interesting Tokyo Shrines & Temple. An abundance of quaint side street souvenir shops. The entire area is worth a day trip, easy access via Tokyo's Great Subway System.

Beautiful festival on the temple grounds. You can write your wishes on a colored strip of paper & hang on bamboo trees that they erect that night. After dusk the washi candles are more prominent & are a sight to behold.

We stopped in on a lovely meditative service on Sunday. The Temple was wonderful and the park grounds were pleasant to walk about. Not a bad way to spend a few hours before heading into the city for museums.
