The Unborn Children Garden, this is a very interesting place which is also in the Zojoji complex. These statues represent the unborn children, thus, they are decorated with baby clothes and have baby toys. They are usually accompanied by a gift for Jizō, the guardian of the unborn children, to ensure they're brought safely to the afterlife. 🎌

Close to Zojoji Temple, there's this small but beautiful gate. Next to the Unborn Children Garden. I was about to go back to my capsule hotel when this crossed into my way. I was glad I found it (by accident, though). Yet another place (no matter how small) to explore. 🎌

The spectacular Zojoji Temple and the Tokyo Tower behind. They make a great fusion together, the representation of old and modern Japan in a single place. 🎌

No matter where you are in Zojoji complex, it's amazing how you can feel the Tokyo Tower is also part of it. Its color, its shape, it fits perfectly! This picture was taken from one of the sides of the main temple. 🎌

Tokyo Tower can be seen from several parts inside Zojoji complex. It's always amazing to see how the architecture of one of the most iconic temples in Japan mixes perfectly with one of its most iconic modern symbols. This fusion makes this place spectacular and memorable. 🎌

The beautiful and impressive Tokyo Tower! Perhaps the most known symbol of Tokyo. It's colors, red and white, are due to aviation regulations. But even when these colors are compulsory, they fit the tower perfectly! It's construction was finished on October 14th, 1958. And it was open to the public on December 23rd of the same year. 🎌

I don't really remember what metro station was this, but I was there because it was close to the Tokyo Tower. Once I arrived to that station, I didn't know where to go to get to the tower. I thought I was gonna have to ask for directions. To my surprise, that wasn't needed. It was there, a few hundred meters perhaps, but there. I only had to follow the yellow brick road (metaphorically speaking, of course) 🎌

Tokyo's without a doubt a quite busy and crowded city, but even though, there're spaces for relaxation and to have a good time with friends or family. Lake this lake inside Ueno Park. Where you can stay for hours, maybe renting a boat or just sitting in a bench watching time pass without worries. 🎌

Zojoji is in the Shiba neighborhood of Minato. Actually, the Shiba Park is located around the temple, with the Tokyo Tower standing besides it. It can be reached from the Onarimon and the Shibakoen metro stations (both in the Mita line), the Daimon Station (on the Oedo line), and it's also within 10 minutes walk from the Hamamatsucho Station on the JR Yamanote Line. 🎌

Zojoji Temple from above. At the beginning of the Meiji period, an anti-Buddhist movement spread throughout the country, and in the Second World War, the Zojoji Temple was a target of air bombing. As a consequence, the main hall, the subtemples and the mausoleum of the Tokugawa were destroyed. Almost everything of what we see today are reconstructions of the original buildings.
。
Today, the Zojoji Temple is still the main temple of Jodo-Shu Buddhism in Kanto region. 🎌

Zojoji has an exquisite mixture between traditional and modern architecture, this is because it's located right besides the also famous Tokyo Tower. Thus, making Zojoji one the most popular temples among tourists.
。
Zojoji is also the main temple of the Jodo-Shu Buddhism, in the region of Kanto. It was originally built in 1393 and moved to its current location in 1598, by orders of Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu after arriving to Edo, now Tokyo. 🎌

A shot from inside the Zojoji complex. In the Edo period and the Tokugawa shogunate, the Zojoji Temple became the family temple of the Tokugawa family. Therefore, a large main hall was built. In fact, 6 of the 15 Tokugawa Shoguns are buried in the vecinity of the temple. 🎌

The Zojoji Temple, just besides the Tokyo Tower. This complex was rebuild after the war and its one of the main attractions in Tokyo. It fusions perfectly with modernity, such as with the building at the back. 🎌

It was a foggy day, the city was not very clear, but that's what gave it a mystical view. Still, from the heights of Tokyo Tower I was able to get this kind of experience of Tokyo. 🎌

After a day of exploring, no matter where I went in Tokyo, the modern, vibrant and flamboyant city, I always felt relaxed when I finally came back to my place in Ueno. And inside it there's also this place called Ameyayokocho, an open market with all kind of stuff where I also used to have some dinner. Maybe a ramen, a soba or even a Turkish kebab. It was the perfect place to end the day. 🎌

I love steel structures, specially when they give me perspectives like this one. Wandering inside the Tokyo Tower, I was able to experiment a bit with this kind of combinations. Tokyo seen from the steel of the Tokyo Tower. 🎌

Tokyo from the heights! Day was a bit foggy, but still, the view from the Tokyo Tower was spectacular! One of the main symbols of Tokyo is of course a must for any visitor to this great city. 🎌
