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 Shimbun from over 300 entries as one of the 100 Landscapes of Heisei, 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 wood carvings on the exterior walls of the prayer hall.
About 10 minutes from Shibamata Station down the main street
Entrance to the temple grounds is free, but there is a ¥400 charge to see the Japanese garden and wood carvings
