We wondered around the grounds of the temple without paying to enter the displays. The architecture is incredible, massive wooden roof structure and doors. The gardens are lovely and the temple is considered an important cultural property. Worth visiting but cannot comment on the exhibitions.

This was across the road from our hotel and should have gone here first. It was pretty good by the standards we saw at others, but typically, gets crowded. We went on our own, and were passed by I reckon 10 tour groups? And they...More

If you plan to visit the Tokyo Tower or your hotel is not that far away, I would recommend a stop at this temple. I felt the temple and grounds itself was a little above average when compared to a few other temples and shrines...More

This is a beautiful temple close to the Tokyo Tower. It is about 3/4 mile from the JR line. There is a good ramen place two blocks away.

It is so amazing when you are walking to there that you will see how it is big and special. If you like temple stuff, must go there for toyko tower too.

This temple is pretty quiet and you could probably complete it within 20mins. Not a must-go in my opinion. Nice to take a photo of Zojoji temple with Tokyo tower behind.
