Tsukiji Hongwanji Temple

Local name築地本願寺
LocationTokyo, Japan

This unusual temple sure is an eyecatcher. It is relatively young, having only been built in the 1930s. The unique design, which clearly shows an inspiration by South Asian temples, is the work of Itō Chūta.

The temple is used by the believers of the Jodo Shinshu branch of Buddhism. The easiest way to reach it is via metro, with the Hibiya Line having a stop right next to it.
