After exploring the Tsukiji Outer Market, why not spend some time wandering through the surrounding streets. It’s here that you’ll find the Tsukiji Hongwanji, a Jodo Shinshu Buddhist temple that was rebuilt following a fire in the 1930s.

It’s renowned for its distinctive architecture, with a domed roof and archways that are reminiscent of South Asian temples and Indian palaces. 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.
