Ikegami Hommon-ji Temple, Ota

4.2
#28 of 1,745 in Historic Sites in Tokyo
Visit Ikegami Hommon-ji Temple, erected in 1252 on the site where revered Buddhist priest Nichiren died on his way to treatment at a hot spring. You'll have a chance to observe the oldest five-story pagoda in the region, with its rare 16th-century architecture (it even survived the Tokyo bombing of 1945). Be aware you'll need to conquer a 96-step climb to the complex, and during October, on the 12th day especially, hundreds of thousands of devotees line up to pay their respects to Nichiren.

  • I often go for a walk. Some people go up and down the stairs when they exercise, and some people practice soccer. It is very lively at times such as events.
