Shibamata Taishakuten is a Buddhist Temple first built-in 1629. It is famous for its beautiful wooden carvings. At the back of the Taishakudo Hall, you can see elaborate and intricate carvings detailing Buddhist lore and scripture. The temple is not only gorgeous but also peaceful, and is surrounded by traditional areas for you to enjoy, including the Sankeien garden and Takshakuten Sandō. Shibamata Taishakuten is the heart of the Shibamata area and a must-see.
Located behind the Shibamata Taishakuten temple, Sankeien is a beautiful scenic garden designed by Nagai Rakuzan in the 1920s. The garden conveys a very peaceful and tranquil atmosphere, and the garden’s main focus is the pond in the very centre. Coupled with the tranquillity of the Shibamata Taishakuten, your experience at Suikeiein will help you tap into your love of nature.
Admission to enter Suikeien and the sculpture gallery:
Adults: 400 yen
