Description

Zojo-Ji Temple Part I - 三縁山増上寺 - 4K Ultra HD : What stands out the most here at Zojo-Ji temple is the striking contrast between the old and new Japan. While its immediate neighborhood is dominated by modem buildings and Tokyo Tower, Zojo-ji feels like it has been stuck in a bubble where time moves at a slower pace to its surroundings. Located a few steps away from Tokyo Tower, Zojo-ji temple is a buddhist temple and the main temple for the Chinzei branch of Jōdo-shū Buddhism. Built in 1393, it was only in 1598 that the Zoji-temple moved to its current location. To this date, only the Sangedatsumon Gate (main entrance) has succeeded in withstanding fires, earthquakes and wars, while the main building, also known as Daiden, has had to be rebuilt many times over. While the main attraction here is the temple itself and the possibility for many to take a gorgeous picture of both Daiden (the main temple) with Tokyo Tower in its background, others come to Zojo-ji Temple to visit the Tokugawa mausoleum (only open during some special occasions and some public holidays) and its Jizō statues at the cemetery of Unborn Children that we will cover in depth in the second part of this video.
