Konchiin (金地院) is a Rinzai Zen temple located at the foot of Tokyo Tower. In Kyoto there is a famous temple with the identical name, and these two were both founded by influential monk Ishin Suden (1569 - 1633), also known as Konchiin Suden, who was a political advisor to Tokugawa shogunate founder Tokugawa Ieyasu. This temple was at first erected in 1619 in Edo Castle, but was relocated here in 1639.
Though its main hall is a modern one built after WWII, there remains a large graveyard with many gravestones of domain lords who ruled Hachinohe domain and Shichinohe domain, both located in modern-day Aomori Prefecture.

Tokyo Tower is a communications tower 332.6 meters (1,091 feet) high, constructed in 1958 and located near Zojoji Temple. Now it's the second highest tower in Japan after 634-meter-high (2,080-foot-high) Tokyo Sky Tree completed in 2012. (There used to be several higher towers than Tokyo Tower even before the construction of Tokyo Sky Tree but they were all demolished.)
Tokyo Tower attracts many tourists as an observation tower.
