ZOJOJI TEMPLE:

Right next to Tokyo Tower is Zojoji Temple (San'en-zan Zōjō-ji). It is the main temple of the Jōdo-shū ("Pure Land") Chinzei sect of Buddhism in the Kantō region.
It was completed in 1393. After WWII the Great Hall (Daiden) was rebuilt in 1974. Six of the 15 Tokugawa shoguns are buried at Zōjō-ji. We were invited to attend a buddhist ritual in one of the buildings. On the grounds there between the temple and Tokyo Tower is Shibak Koen (Shiba Park), a public park. Shiba means grass.
