Tokyo Tower and Zengshang Temple are located near Damen Station on JR Line, and the traffic is quite convenient. We arrived at our destination early at 9 o'clock because we were afraid of being late and crowded. At this time, only a dozen sparse people on the way to the Tokyo Tower, the landlord sister told us that everyone will be almost 12 o'clock to go. But it turns out that we were right to go early because we were crowded late. No. Enter. Gate. Speaking of Zengshang Temple, it has a very high position in Japanese temples. The full name is "Sanyuan Mountain Wide Court Zengshang Temple", which is one of the spiritual temples of the Tokugawa family. If you are interested in more information, you can poke "read the original text" and see their official website - "http://www.zojoji.or.jp deep in the temple, is the tomb of General Tokugawa's family, which contains six generals and some relatives, including the second generation of Tokugawa Shogunate (the third son of Tokugawa Jiakang), the sixth generation of Tokugawa Jiaxuan, the seventh generation of Tokugawa's successor. Since I really don't have the habit of shooting everything related to the cemetery, let's make up for it by ourselves. From 11 o'clock onwards, the Spring Festival ceremony began one after another. First, in the temple near the Tokugawa cemetery, the monks began to recite sutras, and everyone gathered outside the door to listen. After that, they entered the temple one after another to pray. The process of praying is to throw a coin into the money box, and then "click" clap twice, close your eyes and pray. It's a short time. It's different from our three knees and nine taps. But sincerity is good.
The Tomb of the Tokugawa family is here, so it is very important and famous. There are more visitors on holidays. It's quiet on weekdays. Tickets are free. The exhibition hall needs 700 tickets. Several walls are carved with dragon patterns. It is said that this is "Japanese dragon". The difference between Chinese dragon and Japanese dragon is the number of claws. Japanese dragon is three claws.
There are too many people on the streets during the May Day holiday in Japan. The Tokyo Tower may be more suitable for coming back at night, but it's next to the Zengshang Temple. Unlike the crowd of shallow grass people, the quiet and peaceful courtyard scenery here is unique and each place seems to represent a landscape. The cemetery of General Tokugawa's family is also surrounded by the layout of the scenery vaguely shows that the momentum was magnificent.
In the morning, there were very few people beside the Tokyo Tower, and there was no one at the temple, and the birds were singing loudly. The owner of the small shrine around will come out and clean the street in front of the door. It was only cold that day, so the wind was particularly strong.
