Travel Guide - Shibamata Taishakuten Temple

InformationInformation

Shibamata Taishakuten was established in 1629. The temple appears in many Japanese literature works and movies, such as "Higan-sugi-made (Until after the Spring Equinox)" by Soseki Natsume, or "Otoko-wa-Tsuraiyo (It's tough being a man)" by Yoji Yamada.
Entering through the Niten-mon gate with two gods made entirely of Japanese Zelkova, visitors will see some impressive structures such as the Kiken-jo Castle, which enshrines Taishakuten, and the Hon-do main hall. The Daikyaku-den, which is famous historical structure of Tokyo, is also magnificent. There is a garden with a waterfall offering the natural beauty in four seasons.
The approach to Taishakuten is a popular attraction with a number of food shops such as Dango (dumpling) shops and Senbei (Japanese rice cracker) shops on both sides of the road.
The fair celebrating Koshin day, which is said to have rediscovered the Ita Honzon of Taishakuten, attracts many worshippers.
