Tsukiji Honganji Shrine

Tsukiji Honganji Shrine

Tsukiji Honganji shrine may look a little out of place, due to the Indian style exterior.The Honganji we see today was built in 1934, after the prior models burnt down due to the Great Kanto Earthquake in 1923. Designed by architect Ito Chuta, this building is the first in Japan to have an Indian façade.
