The Zenkokuji Temple was one of our favorite places we visited. We were amazed how welcome everyone is to come up and see the Temple.

A really nice temple and fairly big too. It is free to go in and worth a visit if you are in the area.

I'm one for the temples -- and this is a particularly nice one. It's a good counter too to all the hustle and bustle of the Shinjuku district.

This temple has a long history. And it has many things to understand about culture and people of the old Japanese when you come inside the temple such as many beautiful sceneries, doing some practices and praying for happiness good life for myself and everyone....More

This temple is on the well-trodden tourist route in Tokyo and will give you exposure to Buddhism on a surface level. The main Shinto temple in Tokyo is far more spiritual and rustic.

Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around
the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in
Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a
photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old
Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this
day, and there are long-standing restaurants with
geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.
