T-77 Tokyo downtown walking
Enjoy traditional temple ceremony
and beautiful stone garden!
/// Highlights ///
- Fukagawa (Monzennakacho) is located near the central business district of Tokyo, yet has a laid-back downtown atmosphere that is different from the bustle of Asakusa. At Naritasan Fukagawa Fudo Hall, you can participate in a gomadaki ceremony, which is a rare experience for visitors. It is said to change your luck. There are also many sculptures and paintings to see in the temple grounds. Be sure to see the gorgeous portable shrine at Tomioka Hachiman Shrine.
- Kiyosumi Garden is one of the most beautiful gardens in Tokyo and is also known as a museum of scenic stones. Yataro Iwasaki, founder of Mitsubishi Zaibatsu, a successful shipping company in the Meiji era, collected famous stones from all over Japan on his steamship. The garden is reasonably sized, so please take your time to cross the rocky shore (isowatari)and appreciate the scenery, birds, turtles, etc.
- If you wish, you can see the 3.5-meter-high King Enma, one of the largest in Japan, who judges the sins of the dead during their lifetime, before taking a stroll in the garden. 19 prayers are marked separately with a money-offering slot, and if you put money into the prayer of your choice, various sermons by the Buddha will be played on the screen. When you put your money in the box for the prayer of your choice, various sermons of Buddha will be played on the audio system. (in Japanese).
- After a stroll through the garden, take a break for a cup of fine coffee. We will take you to a nice café nearby. The first Blue Bottle Coffee in Japan is also nearby and I can arrange for you to stop by.
