Shiofune Kannonji temple塩船観音寺

Temple

A Shingon Daigo Buddhist temple located in Shiobune, Ome City, Tokyo. The temple is said to have been founded by the mythical 800 year old nun Yao Bikuni during the Taika era (645-650). The temple's principal object of worship is an 11 faced, 1,000 armed, 1,000 eyed figure of Avalokitesvara. Bigleaf hydrangeas, lilies, Japanese clover, red spider lilies, and other plants bloom seasonally on the temple's grounds. An azalea festival is held at the temple in spring when the azaleas come into full bloom.

          The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It's hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world's tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you're in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
