Tsukiji Honganji Temple

he first time I saw the Tsukiji Honganji Temple,  I had to research what kind of a temple it was. Though a Buddhist temple, its architecture is a fusion of different styles – now I’m no expert but at first glance there’s a hint of Hindu style in its facade too.

It’s a few minutes by foot from the Kabuki Theatre in Ginza, and where Tsukiji Market used to be at.

In my recent trips to Tokyo I always missed it during the day. I would go there after sunset to contemplate. It sure is lovely to behold at night.
