Tsukiji Honganji (築地本願寺) is a Shin Buddhist temple run directly by Kyoto-based Honganji Temple, the head temple of the Honganji school of Shin Buddhism. This temple is located near the Tsukiji Jogai Fish Market.
The massive main hall of the temple constructed in 1934 is the first Indian-style architecture in Japan. You can also go into the main hall as shown in the pictures below.
It's a 1-minute walk from Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line Tsukiji Station.
Hondo is the main hall. As aforementioned, it was completed in 1934 in an Indian-style by Ito Chuta, a famous architect in Japan. It is designated as an Important Cultural Property.
The tower on top of the north wing of Hondo is Shoro. Shoro is where a huge bell is hung.
The tower on top of the south wing of Hondo is Koro. Koro is where a huge drum is suspended.
You can go inside Hondo freely. There are chair seats for attendees and a pipe organ is also installed, but the very central part is in a Japanese-style.
Hana-matsuri, held in early April, is an event to celebrate the birthday of the Buddha.
