Taishakuten Daikyo-ji Temple

Founded in 1629, Taishakuten Daikyo-ji Temple (officially Kyoeizan Daikyo-ji) sits at the end of the main shopping street in Shibamata. It was selected by the Yomiuri Shibun as one of the 100 Landscapes of Heisei from over 300 entries and is certainly Shibamata’s most famous temple.

Don’t miss the Japanese garden (Suikeien) located at the back of the temple, as well as the wooden carvings on the exterior walls of the prayer hall (¥400 entrance fee).
