Temple

The official name of Shibamata Taishakuten is “Kyoeizan Daikyo-ji.” It is a temple of the Nichiren sect of Buddhism, and as it was built in 1629 it has quite the long history. The temple features ita-honzon carvings of Taishakuten, said to have been carved by a high priest of the Nichiren sect. Taishakuten is one of the guardian deities of Buddhism.
Within the temple grounds are a “Carvings Gallery,” which features carvings related to the teachings of the Lotus Sutra, as well as “Suikei-en Garden,” a stunning Japanese garden. The area was used as the setting for the film “The Otoko wa tsurai yo (It’s Tough Being a Man),” and it also made appearances in the manga series “Kochira Katsushika-ku Kameari Koen-mae Hashutsujo.”
The road approaching the temple from Shibamata Station is an old-timey shopping street, and it’s packed with shoppers every day.

Highlights

  • The “Carvings Gallery” is a must-see, with its elaborate carvings depicting the life and sutras of Buddha.
  • Enjoy the four seasons in the Japanese garden “Suikei-en Garden”.
  • There is a temple festival held once every 60 days, during which visitors can enter Taishaku-do and pray in front of the temple’s principal item of worship.
  • The shopping street along the path leading to the temple is lively and packed with shops selling things like dango and rice crackers.

    很有歷史古老的寺廟,寺廟樑上的雕刻值得一看,因為平日的關係所以人不多也沒有外國觀光客,和淺草寺相比這裡的感覺使人更舒服

    今天又去自己喜欢的东京老街柴又玩,度过了非常兴奋又充实的一天。在柴又帝释天题经寺看了雕刻画廊,还有寺内的日本庭园「邃溪园」。柴又帝释天参道两旁的各种老店铺也让人逛不够。要想感受一下老东京的庶民生活这里非常值得推荐哦。

    古色古香傳統日本式寺廟,範圍不大逛完整個不需要花太久時間,我喜歡這種寧靜安逸的感覺,參拜的時候不會受到太多干擾

    從參道老街直走不久就可以看到題經寺的二天門,進入正殿參拜還需要脫鞋子,主要是後面還有一個日式庭園「邃溪園」,規模不是很大是傳統的日式建築,坐在室內看庭院非常的悠閑寂靜,帝釋堂周邊的雕刻巧奪天工非常值得一看

    烏龍派出所阿兩的故鄉~保有傳統味道而且外國遊客並不多,還沒有過多商業化,可以感受到日本寺廟樸實無華且不枯燥

    寺廟本身的参觀是免費的,但参觀木雕內部的入場費是400日元,物有所值,因為木雕非常精美,入場費還包括寺廟內的一個花園,那裡也很漂亮。
