Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

took us awhile to find this spot, walking from our sheraton miyako hotel, asked for help along the way. only a handful of people there. a gardener cleaning up. and some fellows trimming a large tree, always something i like to see as i'm a gardener. a peaceful site with quite a number of small buildings and structures. many paper and wooden prayers. a lovely reintroduction to japan as our last visit had been 10 years prior.

All around this temple complex there are buddhas in different shapes and sizes. We went during the new year holiday so we got to experience many traditions we had not seen before. Normally when I have come here it is pretty deserted and peaceful but even with a big crowd it was a calm and serene place.

Every month on the 28th, they have a matsuri. Lots of street food and games. The temple is about 10 minutes walk from Fudomae station.

Up the hill from daienji temple with the 500 small Buddha's is this temple with 500 large buddhas although only some 300 survive. This temple requires a fee of 150 yen per person but there ripped off giant Buddha's are worth it. There is also a small museum. It is worth the further walk from metro station.

I really enjoyed myself the last two mornings outside this temple. I probably took over 100 photos; found the attention to detail and the daily activities of the visitors and groundskeepers fascinating. A lot more peaceful, for example, than the touristy places like Asakusa but well worth the time spent getting there (I was staying just around the corner so it was even better). I couldn't get over the fact that everywhere I turned I found something new to attract my attention.

It takes about 10 minutes from Fudo-mae Station to reach the Meguro Fudoson Temple, which is an important historical site since the temple's black-eyed Fudo Myoo statue gave the district its name.
We recommend to come early in the morning to avoid crowds and enjoy a leisure stroll through the temple grounds.

A big Vairocana statue is settled in this Buddhist temple. It was a famous shrine as a common picnic destination among people in Edo era, and its name was found in an old maps which drawn few hundreds years ago. The building is luxurious and colorful. Cherry blossoms in the temple bloom in the spring.

This temple has quite a history and is one of those off-the-beaten track places ensconced in Meguro, about a kilometer walking for Meguro Station. There are many things to see at this temple, including the small waterfall, stone grotto, main temple, hall, and little forest area in the back.

Before or after you sample one of the many famous ramen shops along Meguro Dori, to the west of the station, consider a visit to Ryusenji.

Ryūsenji is dedicated to Fudō-Myōō, specifically the Meguro Fudō-Myōō, Black-eyed Immovable King of Wisdom. In the Edo Period five protective statues of Fudō-Myōō were placed around the capital and each had different coloured eyes. The statue at this temple was one, and his black eyes give the ward of Meguro its name, with white-eyed Mejiro being another. The theme of the temple, as with its proper name, is dragon springs, and there are several such ornaments about the temple. Temple structures are painted red, the colour of Fudō. The temple is also familiarly called Meguro Fudō-son.
