Great for photography

This is a newly renovated temple. So great for a photographer. Colors are bright and snap in the sun. This is also near many great eating places and historical Chinatown.

The temple lies in Yokohama China town where a lot of Chinese flew in from the end of 19th century and began dwelling here. This temple was built by them for their worship for Tao which was normally unfamiliar to Japanese.So, this type of temple is rare in Japan, the reason of which is worth visiting here. The site is...

We visited the temple the day of the Chinese New Eve and it was really crowded! Chinatown is a must see in Yokohama!

I went there in November and there is very crowded...but I like this place because there is a place where you can know your fortune and it may be correct...very nice place and there are so many food stalls and small items selling shops but things are bit expensive but you can buy beautiful Japanese umbrellas from there..Love this place

We loved the site. It was recently redone and it is a beautiful location surround by plants and great restaurants. A family affair or a couples treat. Educational and worth the visit.

This is the symbol of successful migration of Chinese people in Japan. It is awesome architecture and with full of color make people wander if we are in Japan or China. It is very interesting to see how the same religion (Buddhism) has been understood differently between Japan and China.

It is a Chinese temple, which is dedicated to Guan Yu, a general of the Han Dynasty. If you want to enter inside, a donation is required. Otherwise, it is free to take a picture from outside.

Went to this temple for New Year's Hatsumode (first visit to a temple following new year) and it was really nice and different from the japanese temples. People were burning incense and all kind of rituals were taking place. As it's located at the edge of china town, you definitely want to go for a stroll there and try some... More

When visiting Japan, China Town isn't exactly the culture I wanted to immerse myself in but it was close. This shrine is spectacularly colored and intricate. It is very small compared to some Japanese shrines I visited but nothing compares to the artwork on this shrine. I was fortunate to be there during a Chinese holiday and saw dancing dragons... More

When you see it from the outside, I think most people think "wow! It's so beautiful" and then think "it's a bit over the top isn't it?" and I agree. But then you go in, and pay the 500yen fee and it doesn't matter anymore. Because you get 5 big incense sticks which you use in a particular order to... More
