What people are saying:

Zojo-ji Temple is located in Shiba Park near Tokyo Tower. It is a Jodo sect temple. It is quiet and there are not too many people. In the lobby, you can see the statues of Master Faran, the founder of Japan’s Jodo sect, and the statues of Taoist masters of China. The pure land of the country is a place where the soul rests. The Tokyo Tower against the backdrop of the temple, where modernity and history merge into one.

Additional Information

Introduction

Zojo-ji Temple is a Buddhist temple located in Tokyo’s Minato ward. Zojo-ji is notable for its relationship with the Tokugawa clan, the rulers of Japan during the Edo period. Six of the Tokugawa shoguns are buried in the Taitoku-in Mausoleum on the temple grounds. Zojo-ji’s main gate is the oldest wooden building in Tokyo, dating from 1622. Today, the cathedral and other structures have been rebuilt, and Zojo-ji Temple continues to serve as the main temple of the Pure Land Sect Buddhism and a central seminary for priests and novices. Set near Tokyo Tower, the temple complex is a great place for a stroll and for taking some great pictures.
