If you spend a little time wandering the streets of Tsukiji chances are you’ll pass by Tsukiji Honganji, arguably inner-Tokyo's most unique Buddhist temple. Rebuilt after a fire between 1931 and 1934 its domed roof and large archways, Tsukiji Honganji looks more like an Indian Palace than a traditional Japanese temple. A lot more contemporary than the city’s other religious hubs, Tsukiji Honganji is also famous for being the memorial site and resting place of X-Japan musician and J-Rock legend Hide (Hideto Matsumoto) whose funeral ceremony was held here in 1998.
