Description

► Shibamata Taishakuten is a Buddhist temple in eastern Tokyo that was founded in 1629. I visited this temple for the first time today, and it instantly became a new favorite place of mine. Offering not just a well kept temple, but also a gorgeous little garden in which you can walk around on a woodden bridge, zig-zagging its way through the garden. (and this is pretty convenient, as you are asked to leave your shoes outside before entering the temple grounds.) Last, but not least, there is a small museum attached to the place, where you can see the most amazingly detailed woodcarvings of old Japanese landscape and symbols. - Enjoy!
