This temple was on our TO DO list if we had time. I am glad we made it. This temple is tucked away in the back streets, a quiet haven amongst concrete buildings. If you can, make it a must on your itinerary. I don't want to say too much as it should be left for you to discover. Be aware you can take photos outside but not once you cross into the interior. We found directions to the temple on the Internet. I don't think we would have found it without them. To get to it take a train to Futakotamagawa station and go out of the west exit. Turn right and go along the main road, cross to the other side of this road when you see traffic lights. You will walk under the highway overpass. Ahead, the road will split into two. Stay on the left side and keep walking. You will walk alongside a high wall covered in vines. When you are almost to the end of it you will see a set of covered stairs heading straight down. Go downand turn right at the bottom, cross over the aquaduct and follow the path. You will have the road above on one side and houses on the other. When you come to the next road, turn left and walk straight ahead. You will see the temple on your right a short distance along. When you arrive, go up the stairs to the entrance. You can pay ¥100, light some incense and ring the bell if you want to. Remove your shoes and once you are inside turn to your left. Before you descend the staircase, write your name and address in the guest book making sure you do it vertically and not horizontally. Leave another ¥100 each in the tray. If a monk is close by, ask for some information on the temple before you start down because it is very interesting and there are a few tips about the forthcoming experience. The monk we saw did not speak English but understood what we wanted. You are welcome to look around upstairs and once you leave the interior, go down the stairs, turn to your left and enjoy the peace of the small area watched over by a huge figure in the bushes. We had drawn on the experiences of others and were even able to help a Japanese couple who would have missed the experience totally because they didn't realise what was there.
