A lovely garden/temple complex near Tokyo Tower, easily accessible on foot. We visited on our way back from Tokyo Tower. Both the grounds and the temple itself are beautiful and a quick stop is worthwhile.

You will find Tokugawa's buried here. It is also poignant to see the little doll-like statues here, in memory of aborted babies or those who died in child-birth. Along HIbiya-Dori on your way to the Imperial Palace, or the Ginza, or the Imperial Hotel.

The grounds are large and open. The temple is very big and has plenty to see and walk around. We spent about 30 minutes here before going to the Tokyo Tower.

Odaiba is an entertainment hotspot with a giant ferris
