Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Kanto / Tokyo Prefecture / Chofu / Jindai-ji Temple
Explore the leafy and peaceful grounds of Jindai-ji Temple, replete with babbling streams and ponds habited by koi carp and turtles. This being Tokyo's second oldest temple, established in 733 CE in the Edo-period center for silkworm production, the area retains its old-time atmosphere, with shops in wooden buildings, and even a windmill nearby. Though most of the structures in the temple were rebuilt during the 20th century, you can still view the oldest part of the temple, its gate, built in 1695. Consider stopping by one of the soba restaurants outside to enjoy the delicious local delicacy. Put Jindai-ji Temple and other Chofu attractions into our Chofu trip maker site, and watch your holiday take shape.

都心からのアクセスが1時間程度であるにもかかわらず、豊富な水と木々に囲まれた寺です。開放的な空間は、本堂や元三大師堂がある境内の限られた場所に限られ、それ以外の場所は鬱蒼とした木々に覆われています。境内をゆっくり散策しても1時間程度の広さであるため、深大寺界隈の散策に丁度いいかもしれません。 またところどころに湧水の水源を持ち、参道にはその水を活用した蕎麦店などが軒を連ね、賑わいを見せています..... more

We were able to visit a few weekends ago during the festival, and I have never seen so many brand new darumas in one place! We picked up a very cute new Fatima that had cherry blossoms on it. The shrine will be even more beautiful when the cherry trees in the area are blooming. The food stalls around the shrine offer lots of variety of your traditional foods. We are always suckers for snacks!
We had a great time! We came for the Jindaiji Daruma festival on March 3rd and enjoyed our time. During the festival, the grounds are full of stores selling Daruma statues and the streets around are full of food stalls. You can try lots of street food and sweets and also buy spices, pickles, fruits etc, as well as souvenirs.
