池上の散策コースでは定番となっている、日蓮宗の大本山の寺院です。高台にある寺院であるため、そのからの眺めも素晴らしく、南側は横浜まで見渡せ、冬の空気の澄んだ晴れた日には富士山も見ることが出来ます。初詣や御会式等のイベントがある日の人出は凄まじいですが、普段はそれほどでもなく、犬の散歩やジョギングコースにもなっており、ゆったりと境内を散策することが出来ると思います。 境内には本堂を始め様々な文化財や美術品が配置されていますが、中でも目を見張るのが、仁王門と本殿に安置されている仁王像と、大堂天井に描かれた『未完の龍』です。特に『未完の龍』は、参拝客の中にも気づかない人も多いですので、是非ご覧いただきたいものです。 霊宝殿は、毎週日曜日に入館できます。池上本門寺所蔵の品々は、この寺院だけでなく東京の歴史の遷移も感じることが出来ます。 If you walk through Ikegami, this temple is one of the spots you definitely visit. Because the temple is on the hill, the view from there is wonderful(especially you can look over to Yokohama on the south side). On the clear day...More

駅から少しはなれていて、坂を登ったところにありこの季節は風鈴の音を聞きながら厳かな雰囲気を楽しめる。もし、羽田空港に着いたら是非訪れてほしい。日本の雰囲気を感じれるし、人が少ないのでおすすめ。初詣は人が溢れかえる。 It is a little far from the station, where I am climbing a slope, and this season I can enjoy the harsh atmosphere while listening to the sound of wind chimes. If you arrive at Haneda Airport, please do come over. I feel the...More

A bit of a hike from the station, ut the coolness and quiet of the park was appreciated. Not easy to go from the park to the temple other than walking on the roadside.

very nice to have a walk, special during sakura season, or new years or the big festival they have in Sepember.

実は、朝市場や天気が、良い日は... Can view Mt fuji. And have a lot of events every month. My favorite event is 'oeshiki' during October. また初詣、節分、と日本的な文化を感じることができるイベントも多いのでオススメします。

We walked around the area and loved the fact that it's not full of tourists. It's a suburb that's slow paced with lots of local and traditional houses. The temple is closed to a cemetery and we walked a round the cemetery as well. A...More

We received the New Year at this temple and really enjoyed it. It seemed more accessible and less crowded than Sensoji temple and different groups of selected individuals were allowed to help ring the bell for the New Year celebration. Something we thought it wasn't...More

Very big temple complex. You should go all the way to the back. The main attraction is the main hall and the 5 stories tower. There is Spring festival on the first week of spring season and also on the 13th of October.

We had a very tranquil visit. The blossoms were beautiful, with many raucous crows vying for position in the branches. Many people were waking their small dogs at this site - amusing to watch. Worth the train trip(s) from central Tokyo.

Honmonji temple is one of the mustsees in Tokyo. We were lucky enough to experience it with some trees blooming already. You should go there if you like temples :)
