Large Buddhist temple in Kawasaki area. Dr. Imaizumi Masumasa´s family grave is inside this temple (Dr. Kaoru Ishikawa´s disciple and my personal mentor). When visiting Japan, I make a visit to his tomb and send my best prayers.

Last Temple I saw before coming home to Minnesota (10th trip to Japan). I was convinced to wait a little bit before reviewing this temple because of my negative first impressions. This is the single most overrated place in Japan for a fan of culture or Buddhism. While I was here I saw a Basketball game and did not enjoy the constant sounds of Techno and hard rock music playing throughout the temple grounds (I am not kidding.) At the main entrance to the Temple two people were playing an accordion. There was an American style drum solo that blocked off the main building. Other parts were under construction. Please only go here if you have been to many other Temples already. If you choose this as your first temple you will get the wrong impression. Try and check ahead to see if they will be playing loud music or basketball before visiting. Enjoy the Techno music. (please see Edit this is not a regular occurance) Edit: It has come to my attention that there was a local event at the time I visited. Most major buildings are indeed open most of the year. So check ahead and you may have a great time. It just was not my cup of tea on that date.
